LSBA acknowledges Womble Carlyle missionary work with Katrina victims
Womble Carlyle has bagged the Pro Bono Publico award for the year 2007 for the firm's unflinching support to Hurricane Katrina victims. The award was given away by the Louisiana State Bar association (LSBA) on its 66th Annual Meeting in Sandestin, Florida. Total six pro bono awards were given away by LSBA General Assembly on this occasion. The pro bono project was designed in collaboration with Southeast Louisiana Legal Services (SLLS) in an endeavor to offer free legal aid to New Orleans residents who were left with damaged or destroyed property when the killer Hurricane Katrina struck their shores. Put up in their family homes, the low-income habitants of New Orleans were still to transfer the title of their ancestral homes in their names. Resultantly, they failed to claim for damages and destruction. Womble Carlyle's project was solely aimed at establishing the title of their family homes, so that the victims could claim the federal, state, and insurance assistance and reconstruct their homes.
Who says it's a dog's life
The British are apparently spending more feeding their army dogs than their men in uniform. According to figures obtained by MP Mike Penning, £1.51 (approx. $3) a day is spent on food for soldiers while £2.63 (approx. $5) a day goes for military dogs. Penning's concern over the grave issue is slated to be raised in the House of Commons. He states that troops serving in Iraq were being denied proper meals. The MP even went ahead saying that while U.S. soldiers are provided with high-quality meat, the British troops have to be content with cheap sausages and chips.
