Another 'not guilty' in New Orleans

The owners of a New Orleans nursing home, who were on trial for the negligent homicide of 35 nursing home residents in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, were found not guilty Friday (September 7) after a mere four hours of jury deliberation.

According to a report in the New York Times:
[The] theory of the hurricane’s destruction — that it resulted mostly from government ineptitude and inaction — is fervently adhered to by many in New Orleans, and apparently in the state’s interior as well, as evidenced by Friday’s swift verdict.
I wrote about this case on August 9.
