Coming This Legislative Session – Soaking Notaries For Tribute To Attorneys

Here’s one of the more obnoxious things you’ll see in advance of the special session at the Louisiana Legislature coming up next month. The Louisiana State Bar Association passed a resolution last month to support a bill that would seek higher license fees from non-attorney notaries, and redistribute that money to pay for indigent criminal defense provided by members of the state bar. It’s no surprise that the state bar is clamoring for more funding for indigent defense; they’ve been howling about it for decades. But this is obnoxious on a couple of levels. First, if there is any effort at actual fundraising to support that aim, it’s low-key enough to have escaped our notice. Running to the

A.N. 'Thanassi' Yiannopoulos, who revised Louisiana's civil code, dies at 88

Athanassios Nicholas "Thanassi" Yiannopoulos, a former LSU and Tulane University law professor who spent decades revising Louisiana's civil code, died Wednesday at Tulane Hospital. He was 88. Yiannopoulos, a third-generation lawyer, came to adulthood opposing Fascism and chaos under Nazi occupation in his native Greece, and went on to restore order to Louisiana civil law. In the March 1999 Tulane Law Review, Judge James L. Dennis wrote that Yiannopoulos played an "essential" role in "a renaissance of the civil law in Louisiana in the 1960s and 1970s." Yiannopoulos was born in 1928 in Thessaloniki in northern Greece. During World War II, he "suffered the ignominy of Fascist occupation, as wel
