President taps Baton Rouge trial lawyer to New Orleans court | Local Politics

Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs Deputy Secretary Julie Baxter Payer worked with Papillion for two years after she graduated law school, and can recall how thoroughly she prepared for cases.

“Every time he went into a hearing he was better prepared than anyone else,” she said Monday. “And because of that and because of his demeanor, I always saw Darrell treated with the highest respect, from the other lawyers, from the bench, from the staff.”

Papillion, 54, did not return calls seeking comment.

He grew up in the rural St. Landry Parish community of Swords, between Eunice and Opelousas. Not understanding racial differences as a kindergartener, Papillion was scolded for not self-identifying as Black, Papillion said in a March 2022 Louisiana State Bar Foundation oral history. It wasn’t until later that day that his parents explained race to him.

A voracious reader, Papillion said he knocked out 100 books one summer. As a teenager he worked in the parish courthouse and city hall in Opelousas, watching how lawyers and judges operate. Because Papillion spoke French, he was also an early morning disc jockey at KEUN radio station in Eunice.

He started at LSU-Eunice because his mother was concerned about “being so far away” in Baton Rouge if he went to LSU, he said. Eventually Papillion was able to convince his family that he’d be okay 88 miles east at LSU’s main campus. He graduated from LSU, then crossed Highland Road to attend law school.

After receiving his law degree from the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center, Papillion began working in August 1994 as a law clerk for Louisiana Supreme Court Associate Justice Catherine D. Kimball. It was there, reading appellate records and helping to write opinions, that Papillion said he honed the craft of legal writing and how

Classified documents found at Mike Pence’s home and turned over to DOJ: Lawyer

Mike Pence Gty Mz 13 230124 1674580660175 Hpmain 16x9 992

ABC NEWS–Classified documents have been found in the home of former Vice President Mike Pence and turned over to the FBI for reviewmultiple sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.

A lawyer for Pence conducted a search of Pence’s home in Indiana last week and found around a dozen documents marked as classified, sources said. The search was done proactively and in the wake of the news that classified documents from before he was president were found in Joe Biden’s home and old office at the Penn Biden Center, a Washington, DC, think tank.

The Pence documents are undergoing a review by the Department of Justice’s National Security Division and the FBI, the sources said

CNN first reported the discovery of classified materials.

In a letter sent last week to the National Archives, and obtained by ABC News, a representative for Pence wrote that Pence had engaged outside counsel on Jan. 16 to review records that were stored in his home. It was during that review that a lawyer found a “small number of documents that could potentially contain sensitive or classified information interspersed throughout the records.”

Pence’s lawyer and representative, Greg Jacob, wrote in the letter that the counsel was unable to provide an exact description of the folders or briefing materials because they did not review the contents after realizing they had potential classification markings.

“Vice President Pence immediately secured those documents in a locked safe pending further direction on proper handling from the National Archives,” Jacob, who is Pence’s designated representative for his records and also his former top lawyer during the administration, wrote in the letter.

Jacob asserted that Pence was “unaware” of the records being in his possession and was “willing to fully cooperate with the National Archives and any appropriate inquiry.”

Luling lawyer rebounds after Hurricane Ida

When Luling personal injury attorney, Loyd J. Bourgeois first walked into his office after Hurricane Ida, he stood at his desk and looked up. He had an unobstructed view of the sky. His office and almost everything in it was destroyed.

Bourgeois’ home was also heavily damaged in the storm. “It was a difficult year, to say the least. For us personally and for our entire community,” said Bourgeois.

Through hard work, determination, and some pre-planning, Bourgeois was able to quickly get his law practice up and running again. Bourgeois had recently invested in new cloud-based firm management software which could be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. Although everyone on the current team had damage to their homes, they were able to log in remotely to all of their files and start checking on their clients from their temporary locations.

The firm moved to a new location on Wade Street within a month of the storm and since then, with the added space, has grown its legal team with additional attorney and staff hires over the past year. Although the new office offered the space the team needed, Bourgeois didn’t feel it was well situated to his team or clients’ needs.

“Our goal is for everyone who enters our law firm to feel welcome and know they are in the right place.” But, Bourgeois said the office look and layout didn’t convey that feeling. With all of the local contractors and skilled construction workers busy with the important work of getting people back into their homes, he took matters into his own hands. Along with his sons and father, he started knocking down walls himself after work one Friday and continued construction on nights and weekends whenever he could work around his kids’ busy activity schedules.

Bannon’s Lawyer Seeks to Exit Jan. 6 Contempt Case Before Trial

(Bloomberg) — The lawyer defending Steve Bannon against contempt charges over his refusal to cooperate with the Congressional Jan. 6 committee asked to withdraw from the case because he may be called as a trial witness.

Robert Costello made his request to US District Judge Carl Nichols in a motion filed Friday in federal court in Washington. The lawyer’s move comes just before Bannon’s trial is set to begin on July 18, but Costello noted that Nichols had yet to rule on an earlier request that he be allowed to testify for the defense about his interactions with the Jan. 6 panels and prosecutors.

“If the Court decides to prevent me from testing, there will be no pathway to inform the Jury about the communications with the Select Committee or the three prosecutors in this case,” Costello said. He accused them of interfering with his attorney-client relationship with Bannon by trying to access his phone records.

Bannon, a longtime Donald Trump adviser, was indicted in November on two counts of contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with subpoenas from the House Jan. 6 committee seeking his testimony and production of documents.

He has previously argued that he relied in good faith on Costello’s advice concerning the subpoenas, but Nichols ruled in April that he could not make that case to the jury. Bannon has more recently sought to delay his trial, arguing that the ongoing televised Jan. 6 committee hearings could prevent him from getting a fair trial.

Maryland attorney general primary pits former governor’s wife against ex-understudy

As the race to be the Democratic nominee for Maryland attorney general enters its final stretch, the contest is increasing looking like a toss-up between two long-standing fixtures of state politics. And there’s a Shakespearean-level family twist.

Rep. Anthony Brown was lieutenant governor from 2007-2015 under Gov. Martin O’Malley. The pair ran as a ticket in 2006 and worked closely together in Annapolis. Brown lost the 2014 governor’s race to succeed O’Malley. But Brown quickly rebounded by winning an open Prince George’s County-based House seat in the Washington, DC, suburbs.


Brown’s main Democratic primary rival for attorney general is an assistant state’s attorney in Baltimore County who went on to serve as a Baltimore City district judge, Katie Curran O’Malley, who just happens to be the wife of Brown’s old boss, the former governor. Curran O’Malley was Maryland’s first lady for those eight years after her husband’s 2006 gubernatorial win. She’s also the daughter of longtime state Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr.

Brown and Curran O’Malley will face off in the July 19 Democratic primary. They’re vying to succeed Attorney General Brian Frosh, who is retiring from office. The Brown-Curran O’Malley race has forced the Democrats, both at the state and national levels, to pick sides. And with the most recent polls having found the two candidates statistically tiedthis race is likely headed for a photo finish.

Because there are few notable policy differences between the two, the race has centered on other factors, such as relevant experience and governing philosophy. Curran O’Malley, who trails Brown in endorsements but notably has the support of former Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski, recently hit her rival with an ad questioning his qualifications to be attorney general
