Kimball v. Malinda
(March 2006)

McCranie Sistrunk Attorneys won a victory in favor of East Jefferson Levee District in a case entitled Kimball v. Malinda in the 24th District Court in Jefferson Parish. The case involved two fatalities and three seriously injured. The allegations against the Levee District were that it failed to maintain the bushes and shrubs on the neutral ground which contributed to an auto accident resulting in two fatalities and three seriously injured. Counsel successfully proved that the neutral ground in question was not under the care, custody or control of the Levee District and therefore had no duty to the plaintiffs.
