Description

WBRZ-TV (Baton Rouge) "discloses that the state entered into settlements that seemingly were far in excess of what would have been awarded on appeal." The station also "outlined a pattern of misconduct and exploitation of an insurance program designed to protect small towns and cities against major lawsuits. We showed how the executive director of the Louisiana Municipal Association received kickbacks and special favors from a private firm which acted as administrator of the insurance program."
