I'm your attorney, Lionel B. Landshark.

The feeding frenzy has started. Lawyers are starting to circle New Orleans looking for people with deep pockets to sue for Hurricane Katrina. Surprisingly, Bush and FEMA aren't on the list.

Daniel Becnel Jr. has filed a Class Action placeholder suit to assign blame for the failure of the 17th Street Canal levee wall, initially naming Boh Bros. Construction Co. of New Orleans and a small Florida construction company as defendants. In a class action, lawyers file suit on behalf of a group of individuals who are representative of those injured by an action. Such suits ask the court to include all others who are similarly affected. Note that Becnal doesn't have a client. He's just suing, and will add clients later.

Nice to see that the legal profession doing this work out of the goodness of their hearts. Oh yeah, and the 50-70% they're gonna take from the victims, er I mean clients, as tribute.
