Well Over 2 years ago, A federal judge in New Orleans awarded 6 victims of Hurricane Katrina almost $750,000 …. ruling that the Army Corps of Engineers helped cause the flooding of their homes and businesses by carelessly maintaining a shipping channel to the Gulf of Mexico. This Landmark decision was the first to break through the legal immunity that has shielded the Corps from liability for flood damage in the deadly storm’s aftermath.
On March 2, 2012…the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the verdict.
In this INSIDER EXCLUSIVE Special, we “Go Behind The Headlines” in KATRINA JUSTICE – Tanya Smith’s Story to meet and examine how Joe Bruno, Managing Partner of Bruno & Bruno and some of his legal team, John Andry and Scott Joanen helped get Tanya justice.
And to see how the Corps … in the opinion of U.S. District Court Judge Duval ‘found that they had not acted with due care when it botched the operation and maintenance of MRGO, and it wasn’t making a judgment call when it ignored the safety of New Orleans residents and failed to tell Congress about the channel’s environmental and safety problems’.
And he went on to find that ….. ‘The Corps knew that the channel “would not be a static, unchanging waterway,” but nonetheless failed to strengthen MRGO’s banks with piles of rock, dredged its depths to the extent that loose soil slid from its shores and dumped dredged muck on delicate wetlands that died and ceased to act as a barrier from salty Gulf waters’.
The ‘Corps clearly took the position that its primary mission was to keep the shipping channel open to deep draft traffic regardless of the consequences’, the judge wrote.
Joe Bruno and his team of lawyers have earned the highest respect from citizens and lawyers alike…. as some of the best Trial lawyers in New Orleans…. In Louisiana…..and in the nation.
They have fought ….and continue to fight valiantly for the last 7 years to get justice for the many innocent & hard-working people victimized by the Army Corps of Engineers, the bureaucrats…. and the politicians.
Their goals….. Not ONLY To get Justice for Tanya, and all the victims of this terrible tragedy… But to make sure that ….All Americans are treated with equal respect and dignity as guaranteed under the Constitution of the United States.
