JUSTICE OFFICIALS' ONLINE BEHAVIOR RESULTS IN NEW TRIAL - Criminal Defense Lawyer

A federal judge in New Orleans has ruled that a new trial is necessary in a case where the accused were New Orleans police officers accused of shooting at unarmed civilians during the Katrina aftermath.

In his ruling on the defense attorneys' motion the judge wrote:

"This case started as one featuring allegations of brazen abuse of authority, violation of the law and corruption of the criminal justice system; unfortunately, though the focus has switched from the accused to the accusers, it has continued to be about those very issues...After much reflection, the court cannot journey as far as it has in this case only to ironically accept grotesque prosecutorial misconduct in the end."

The criminal defendants, who had been sentenced to decades in prison, will now all be given new trials.

The victims may be able to find some justice by the filing of a civil rights claim against the city.
