Kvelling*

Posted by Jeff Lipshaw

Over the course of a career, I've mentored enough people to be proud when they achieve good things after we've parted company, but I haven't been teaching long enough to get a lot of that yet from my law students.

One of my students (and my research assistant) at Tulane in 2006-07, Matthew Kirkham, is an assistant DA in Orleans Parish (New Orleans), Louisiana.  This story is about the successful prosecution of a guy who stole $500,000 by not providing contractor services to Katrina victims.  As reported, "Assistant District Attorneys Alex Calenda and Matt Kirkham handled the case."

* Per Merriam-Webster, "Yiddish kveln to be delighted, from Middle High German quellen to well, gush, swell."
