Criminal Justice in New Orleans:
My friend Brian Privor recently returned to his law firm following a six-month stint as a public defender in New Orleans. Brian kept a blog about his experience, and I wanted to point out some interesting posts for those curious about the criminal justice system in New Orleans post-Katrina (or at least one public defender's take on it). I recommend Time's Up, Pencils Down from November '06, Drunk Justice from December '06, and Misdemeanor Murder from April '07.
