Monitor delay 

NOPD fed consent decision postponed

  The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) is still without a federal consent decree monitor. Last week, U.S. District Court Judge Susie Morgan was scheduled to select one of the two final firms that would monitor the NOPD and implement reforms as ordered under the federal consent decree. That decision has been postponed until May 14.

  Mayor Mitch Landrieu's administration prefers Chicago-based consulting firm Hillard Heintze, while the U.S. Department of Justice likes the Los Angeles-based international law firm Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton. The extended deadline gives the parties a chance to reach consensus. If they can't, Morgan will decide.
