Change is coming to LiveHelp. LivePerson is retiring its product on May 31, and Pro Bono Net is ending its longstanding relationship with that company as different states move on to new chat platforms. As of Friday, May 6th, Iowa Legal Aid has officially begun handling its LiveHelp chats via LiveChat, Inc–the chat program Iowa Legal Aid and Pro Bono Net have recommended most states consider. (PBN and ILA conducted extensive analysis of current chat options as part of an ongoing TIG project.)
In this webinar, Sam Halpert of Pro Bono Net and Eve Ricaurte of Iowa Legal Aid will share their experiences with the migration process to help other LiveHelp programs transition to LiveChat smoothly and with confidence. Sam will also prepare similar notes on the process of transitioning to Comm100, which PBN also recommended. (Sam has been supporting LHNY with its migration to the Comm100 platform.)

(Baton Rouge, Louisiana – December 4, 2014) At a press conference on Thursday, Project Veritas Action released a video detailing the situation as well as Ethical Conduct Complaints filed today with the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board against former Assistant U.S. Attorney Sal Perricone, former Assistant U.S. Attorney Jan Mann and former U.S. Attorney Jim Letten and a DOJ Ethics Complaint against Karla Dobinski, the Deputy Chief of Criminal Section at the Civil Rights Division.
Best-selling author and award-winning journalist James O’Keefe, president of Project Veritas Action Fund, has released a new video in Baton Rouge, Louisiana today and filed documents pertaining to gross prosecutorial misconduct in the case where he was prosecuted for entering the office of Senator Mary Landrieu allegedly under false pretenses.
O’Keefe’s prosecutor Jan Mann, Jim Mann and Sal Perricone have been forced to resign and surrender their federal Bar credentials, but they are still able to practice law in state courts. Their boss, Jim Letten, was forced to resign but is now a Dean at Tulane. Most egregious, Karla Dobinski has had no real disciplinary actions taken against her. She is currently working in the same DOJ component involved in recent major Ferguson, MO and NYC issues.
“It is in the public’s best interest that none of these people should be able to practice in either state or federal court again,” said James O’Keefe.
On January 25th, 2010, James O’Keefe was arrested with three colleagues by the FBI and charged with entering federal property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony, a charge that was well beyond the actual facts of the case.
U.S. Attorney Jim Letten recused himself from the case, leaving the prosecution in the hands of Assistant U.S. Attorney Jan Mann, who had multiple documented connections with U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu. Senator Landrieu’s brother was also involved in the leadership of the office and worked closely with Attorney Mann.
Michael Madigan, James O’Keefe’s attorney, requested the case be moved to another jurisdiction due to these relationships. However, this was not granted.
The facts of the case are straightforward with no criminal intent.
Weeks after O’Keefe’s arrest, privileged client-attorney emails were released to the press in a possible criminal action by the U.S. Attorney’s office.
Last year, five New Orleans police officers who had been convicted of a deadly shooting had their convictions overturned. A scandal was uncovered at the time where at least three U.S. Attorneys, Sal Perricone, Jan Mann and Karla Dobinski, had posted comments about the case online, all from Letten’s office. These comments included prejudicial comments condemning the cops during the trial.
Upon further investigation, we uncovered several blog posts with the screenname “LegacyUSA,” who is identified as Sal Perricone in court documents. “LegacyUSA” wrote comments about O’Keefe’s case, including one after the day of following his arrest stating “Sure they should be punished. Throw the book at them.”
The case ended on May 25, 2010 with O’Keefe receiving an unusual and unprecedented three years of probation for a Class B Misdemeanor.
Upon releasing the video, James O’Keefe released the following statement:
“Five years later, I refuse to remain silent any longer. It is time to set the record straight, which is why I want people to know what happened in Louisiana. In light of new revelations, all of these people need to be brought to justice.
“Senator Landrieu needs to address the questions raised in the complaints we have filed and the prosecutors involved in my case need to answer for their possibly criminal, or at least unethical actions. If the Senator and her friends in powerful positions can do what they did to me, they can do it to any Louisianan.”
All documents will be provided to press who were unable to attend the conference upon request.
