In the Civil Justice Realm, concerning such occurences as a curatorship being manipulated for personal gain is obvious in a specific Ouachita/Lincoln parish case.
This case is one of only two of the largest awards from a rail accident in U.S. history. Yet, in an official capacity, individuals are being mishandle & misappropriated, by a select Judge, retired from the bench who was called in to service by the LASC.
Thusly, the Louisiana Supreme Court, can secure the procurement of justice in this present matter.
To truly comprehend this twenty-first century malady It will take the realization of the truth! Not the facts, but the true Truth. The undeniable.
In the Case of Sallie Faye Huey and the people in the Ouachita-OCS.The Case of Sallie Faye Huey 12Dec11
Huey scheduled for Hearing in Baton Rouge, La.
A determination as to whether or not; because of an attorney's ineptitude if a settlement of her case can proceed or because of an improper file-ing she has no further recourse. The question is whether or not a settlement was reached in a prior hearing.
In the meantime the original attorney has opted out of the case. In an other part of the case, in the federal system and in State Court, the Opelousas Attorney in that matter, at one point was to appear in November '11, to testify in a deposition; attempting to determine if she could represent her client, because of prior knowledge of the case, through the attorney who opted-out of the Civil Service matter.
The same attorney, from Opelousas; secured a recently elected legislator to handle the hearing on December 12, 2011. Now, that attorney is vascillating about appearing with Huey. In the meantime, Huey received correspondence from Civil Service with a cc to the attorney who opted-out; identified as the attorney-of-record!This is a matter only the Lousiana Supreme Court's Office of Disciplinary Counsel can settle.
It should also be stated, that a continual upheaval is on-going in the Offices of Huey's former employ. Specifically black employees are systematically and routinely mishandled. It would appear that a concerted effort is being effected to rid the office of black employees.
At least (7) seven employees are having similar problems. It so disconcerting that one former employee went to the office, with committing suicide there her objective.
In the matter of Huey, her problems began when she blew the whistle on the way some black clients were being mishandled and talked dowm to. Now, it would appear as earlier stated, the 'government' is attempting to rid her of legal representation.

"From losing their bargaining rights to bearing the brunt of city and state budget cuts, public service employees are watching their entire life savings disappear," Sharpton writes. "And because about 1 in 5 Blacks work in civil service, we are disproportionately suffering yet again during these tough times."
Sharpton cites a study by the Center for Labor Research and Education that showed Blacks were "30% more likely than other works to be unemployed in the public sector."
That puts them on the chopping block far more often than workers in private industries.

This then would speak to a Shirley Sherrod type scenario as an effort to retract advances on a broad scale from blacks in general in what is perceived as "cushy" jobs!!
And a further understanding of whether the conservatives in state government have issued edicts to the effect. That being, purge the system of blacks who have enjoyed the benefits of good public sector jobs.
Radical conservative politicians want to slash city, county and state jobs -- and undercut the economic security of African-American families, says this union official.
When I was growing up in Cleveland, some of the most respected people in my neighborhood were the folks who worked for the city, county or state. My father was a city bus driver who took great pride in getting people safely to and from their jobs every day. My mother was a community college teacher who loved preparing her students for success.
It turns out that my family was far from unique: Twenty-one percent of all black workers are public employees, making the public sector the largest employer of black workers, according to a recent University of California, Berkeley study (pdf). The wages that African Americans earn in the public sector are higher than those we earn in other industries. Furthermore, there is less wage inequality between African-American workers and nonblack workers in the public sector than in other industries.
The author of the study, Steven Pitts of Berkeley's Center for Labor Research and Education, emphasizes that his analysis is based on the national workforce. In cities where African Americans are a larger proportion of the population, "the importance of the public sector to black employment prospects" is even greater.
Another recent finding makes Pitts' conclusions even more significant. According to the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., although the economy is showing some signs of recovery, African Americans in 2010 had unemployment rates of at least 15 percent in severely depressed states -- levels not seen since the Great Depression.
These revelations mean that the plans by radical governors to rob public employees of their rights, shrink pay and benefits, and cut jobs will have a disproportionate impact on black families and communities. In other words, white America's bad cold has turned into pneumonia for black America -- and it will get worse if ultraconservative politicians cripple public-sector unions, making them incapable of protecting their members.
Both of my parents were active union members because they knew that the labor-rights and civil rights movements were the way for African Americans to achieve upward mobility and equality. In fact, labor unions and civil rights organizations have worked hand in hand in just about every fight for equality and economic justice that our nation has known.
When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, he was in Memphis, Tenn., on behalf of 1,300 sanitation workers, members of AFSCME Local 1733. They were on strike for more than a bigger paycheck; as their "I am a man" signs made clear, they wanted respect for the work they did. King stood with them because he recognized that freedom requires that workers have a voice, the ability to provide for their families and the power to shape their destinies.
Not only do public-sector jobs mean economic security for black families; they are also jobs that are vitally important to communities across this nation. Whether they are teachers, bus drivers, sanitation workers, snowplow operators, emergency medical technicians, nurses or librarians, public employees perform jobs that towns and cities of every size and description depend on. Their work strengthens neighborhoods and supports basic American values like looking out for one another, preparing our children for the future and ensuring that there is a safety net for the most vulnerable members of our country.
But if you believe the radical governors and legislators in Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida and other states, many of these jobs are unnecessary, and the workers who provide them are "coddled" because they have the right to a voice on the job. Since January 2009, state and local governments have laid off 429,000 workers, and these layoffs have already had dire effects on families across the country.
And yet instead of joining with us to find solutions and protect the rights of workers, these governors are inflicting more pain. Their only interest is in attacking our jobs, crippling our unions and dismantling public services. At a time when we should be pulling together, their tactics and rhetoric are ripping us apart.
Because so many black families have built careers in state and local government, what these corporate-backed politicians are also doing is undercutting the economic security of black families. Ask if this is their intention, and of course they will deny that it is. But even the best of intentions (and their intentions are far from the "best") can have unintended consequences. And there is no denying that the path they've chosen will have dire consequences for many black families.
That's one of the many reasons African Americans, whether public employees or not, whether union members or not, are standing with the workers who are fighting back. If 21 percent of black workers are public-sector employees, that means that one out of every five black workers is employed by a state or local government. Our financial well-being and the economic security of the neighborhoods we live in are at stake. It is up to all of us to fight for our future.
