New Orleans DA's Chapter 9?

posted by Adam Levitin

A couple of years ago, it looked like New Orleans itself would have to file for Chapter 9.  Now it might just be the DA's office, which is mulling a rare Chapter 9 filing.  To file for Chapter 9, an entity must be a "municipality," which is defiend as a "political subdivision or public agency or instrumentality of a State."   I guess the local DA's office qualifies.  Interesting game of chicken with the tort plaintiff who was wrongfully convicted of murder.
