As much as we love New Orleans, home of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, it is a dangerous city. There were 199 murders in the Crescent City in 2011. There have already been 20 murders in New Orleans this year, and January isn't quite finished.
While many of the culprits and victims are part of the city's drug and gang violence, bystanders and good Samaritans sometimes get caught in the cross-fire. As a Fifth Circuit practitioner, you not only need to be aware of your surroundings when appearing before the federal appellate court in New Orleans, you also need to take measures to make yourself a less-appealing target. So why not use your iPad and Thomson Reuters new ProView app to make yourself a little safer?
Or at least a faster-moving target.
