City Announces Siemens Settlement

Jackson & Siemens Settle Lawsuit for $90 Million

Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba holding a press conference on the Siemens lawsuit.  Watch the press conference below.



Kingfish note: "Self-seeking bloggers who are mouthpieces for the corrupt?" Oh really? Nice try. This website has questioned the Siemens contract since the first day. In fact, this website posted the contract and the fees to show everyone how corrupt it was. This website even commissioned someone to analyze the contract to show everyone how bad the contract really was. If the Mayor means this website, he can go to hell and stay there. Unless he meant someone else, as in a particular black blogger. 

Speaking of corrupt, why don't you answer this question, Mr. Mayor. Ask one of your lawyers about the Siemans deal. He received a pretty penny on it as he was in the Krewe of Harvey and helped put the whole thing together.

As for the settlement itself, nice job. The citizens of Jackson were looted by the politicians who put the deal together, their buddies they forced down Siemens' throat, and Siemens itself.  The failure to collect water bills severely damaged the city's finances when it most needed money.  The Mayor did his job on this case and that was stand up for the city of Jackson and that my friends, is the bottom line.

I'm familiar with the term self-serving, but what the hell is self-seeking? Doesn't that require one to sit atop a Tibetan mountain, cross-legged and chant OOooohms?

So what was the settlement?

It appears the Siemens debacle and the extreme shortfall in city revenue has kept hizhonor on the defensive for most of his tenure. Now we will see what Antar looks like when he goes on offense. Cooperative economics and revolutionary movement of da people. Forward! Get ready Kushites!

The $90 million settlement is HUGE! This money will probably be almost half of what is needed to get the zoo back up and running.

That's what you call a win -win!

Lol. Meanwhile the usual suspects move on to the next bond fund bananza. I guess we know where the zoo reopening funds are coming from now.

In the future major corporations will refuse to contract with the City of Jackson because a dispute over their performance will be adjudicated in the defendant’s hell hole judicial system operating in Hinds County. Corporate wealth distribution by judge and jury.

Anonymous said...

$90 million doesn’t come close to covering the lost revenue and the cost to fix the system. Jackson could have gotten far more out of a settlement but everybody knew a water bond default would happen in 2020 without a settler. Something is better than nothing.

Anonymous said...

@5:48 - I was wondering that too.
@5:58 - Agreed. The price of COJ doing business with anybody just went UP.
And Siemens does water systems all over the country and doesn't have problems except here. Wonder why.

The auditor's demand letter for $6,940 also alleges that Brewer undercharged the buyers for a total of $2,730, although that amount is not part of the criminal charge, the statement said. The demand letter's total also includes interest and investigation charges.

The letter is a civil action, and "the criminal charges do not just go away” if Brewer pays the total, said Logan Reeves, a spokesman for White.

Great to settle with Siemens. But hope the subs that ripped the city off aren’t off the hook!

6:06, actually multiple towns in Mississippi have successfully sued Siemens for the same thing, but all were a much smaller scale.

I can see them now. Rubbing their palms together. Smacking their lips. Smiling and laughing. Can’t wait to get some of this money for a grass roots community program or one of those juicy city contracts where they make something worse instead of fixing something. I hear the song Happy Days Are Here Again playing in the background.

Chock-way is especially pleased because a portion $30 million attorneys fee which will be deducted from the $90 million settlement will find its way to his re-election campaign account.

So is this the end of matter? No criminal charges?

That $ net of legal fees?

Wonder what the actual recouped money is for the city minus attorney fees? Wonder if Siemens and the named individuals are paying the city's attorney fees? Wonder what the settlement amount breakdown of each individual party such as Socrates, Marcus, Hersey Meters, ect is.

The answers to all the above is probably sealed and their publicists are in overdrive protecting their clients. Don't you agree, KF?

Doubt BabyChok ever seriously goes after the subs because to do so will expose that Chokwe Sr. was the person who issued the marching order to move the water dept Accounts Receivable function, and the jobs that went with it, to Detroit, Michigan. BabyChok would have to answer why they can process water bill collections in Detroit but not right here in Jackson. Now the bill submittals go to Memphis. Why is that BabyChok? Why aren't those jobs going to job needy Jacksonians?

Anonymous said...

Honest question for Kingfish or anyone else:

It was my understanding that Seimens (or an approved Seimens contractor) was not allowed to install and calibrate the system as the City Council/Mayor wanted their friends to get that contract. True or false?

If true, then why is Seimens at fault for a dime when the equipment was not set up correctly?

Anonymous said...

I know you will never post this because you're a hypocrite and not interested in the truth but your fee-based spin. You protect Chris McNeil and his political cronies in Flowood who caused all this. What about his $1M+ commission? You didn't add that to your list of fees collected on who got what because you didn't want to disclose and expose your buddies. Shame on you as you don't practice what you preach. Everything you said above about the protecting the corrupt can be said of you and you know it. Look in this mirror, pal.

It cracks me up when people who obviously read this site put down on the readers of this site. Many of those same people then post comments critical of those who post comments.

I'm not even sure what "the battle of public perception" is, other than maybe a bullsh*t slinging competition. In that arena, I think Mayor Labamba can dance with the best of 'em.

@6:06, What are you basing your statement on that they don't have any problems except in Jackson? They had to pay 1.6 Billion in fines for a massive bribery scheme. You don't think that's a problem?

The mayor should work with the City Council setting up a committeeof internal city personnel and external friends, sorry consultants to determine how best to utilize this money to help improve the city. I would expect they could come to a conclusion on the project in 24-36 months.

Too quick. Smells fishy. This type of litigation takes years. Must be trying to get something done before Feds come in and claw back from the city, the mayor, or his “disadvantaged” and “marginalized” black subcontractors whose shell companies made millions off the tax payers and funneled the actual work to Richard Rula in Florence.

Money should be used to build a statue in honor of Chokwe and fund picnics and bus trips hosted by Stokes. No need to fix the third world streets.

The only thing that saved Big Chok from federal prison was his death. When the FBI brings the documents to a ferdeal grand jury, they have boxes full of evidence. There presentation was spot on.

I love reading the racists' post on this blog. Reminds me of why I left Mississippi and why Mississippians are their own worst enemy. To sum up the comments so far:

All problems that Jackson faces are the result of black people.
Black people don't deserve to have money.
Black lawyers don't deserve to get paid for their work.
Black businessmen and women will only fail.
Black politicians are totally corrupt.

Meanwhile a bunch of white career state employees and do-gooders get popped less than two weeks ago for the biggest heist in state history! And they were stealing money from the poorest Mississippians! You can't make this shit up I guess, which is typical for my poor home state unfortunately. Keep on talking though. See what that gets you. 150 more years of the same old shit sandwich. Eat up good ole boys.

Fantastic work by the Mayor and the lawyers representing the City in hitting Siemens between the eyes, resulting in a $90 million settlement. As KF points out, the Mayor inherited this mess when he took office and now something good has finally come from it.

It is amazing that some of the haters on here try to actually criticize the work that resulted in this $90 million payday for our City.

So to summarize, the city gets back $90million, Marcus Wallace(MAC & Associates) and a host of other minority contractors still get paid along with the bond pimps & consultants, and we still have shitty, non functional water meters that aren't reading correctly. Am I correct?

Anonymous said...

If truth be told, and it seldom is, we should regard this as a stalemate, not a victory. That is, unless you are one of the hustler sub-contractors who still walk away with millions of dollars for hustling the system. We, the stupid taxpayers are basically back where we started from years ago (minus legal fees). We have a broken system that needs fixing and a shrinking tax base. Now our mayor announces that we will fix everything and there is a "new day" in Jackson, Mississippi. Sound familiar?

If..Jackson, floated a bond for the original funding...and the settlement is for the SAME approximate amount......THEN, the city does NOT have "free" money. It is a wash!!

Anonymous said...

Good for you 9:50 and good riddance. Take your stupid beliefs to somewhere else and help put that city under.

Look at any DemocRat controlled city in Mississippi and they are all mirrored images of Jackslum!!!! Why is that, why is that in Detroit, Baltimore, Cleveland, and St. Louis???? Seems to be the trend incompetence, corruption and murders on a daily basis wherever you pee on a regular schedule.

Sure is funny that all us who live in "red" controlled area are doing well. No water/sewer problems, better than good schools, roads you can drive on, almost NO crime and functioning neighborhoods.

Again glad you decided to take your self serving, failing ideology elsewhere. Your voting groups has fuk'd up enough of this state.

1. Fully staff JPD - lower crime will stop the bleeding until taxpayers return

2. Use some of it to leverage street paving and water/sewer repair

3. Create a rainy day fund to weather budget shortfalls to where the infrastructure budget doesn't ever have to be neglected again.

The city council approved the order to authorize the hiring of Lightfoot, Franklin and White at their 5/14/19 meeting. The contingency fee agreement was for 33.33% of net recovery, or 40% of net recovery if their expenses ended up being more than $1mm. Not bad for 9 months of work.

This is not windfall but the money should fix the water system that was supposed to have been done to start with. Every dime of this should to into broken water system. That should be how legally this money is directed.

Anonymous said...

I am with some of the other posters. Sure $90mil is the recovery amount. I would like to know the following:

1) how much was paid in the total contract?
2) how much was still owed on the total project? Was it paid off entirely/bonds/other fees?
3) Are the contractors going to be held liable? Seems this was a "kush" gig for friends of the Lumumba family.
4) How much was charged to get to the recovery of the $90mil?

How are people not in federal prison for this type of negligence and mismanagement?

Anonymous said...

@ 10:13, like i said, biggest heist of the past decade was done by the republicans good ole boy network, which was revealed by White and associates a couple of weeks ago. Jackson is in such bad shape because the middle and upper class, which happen to be white in this state, abandoned it. All because they didnt want to send their kids to school with black kids. The reason those other cities you listed are doing so poorly is because the manufacturing jobs that were once there all went overseas. Who legislated the policies that shipped those jobs elsewhere? It wasn't the dems my friend. It wasnt black people or poor whites either.

Also for the record I net more than $500K a year, employ 10 people and have a business that nets $10 mil annually, all done from arguably the best and riches city on the west coast (and it aint in the Bay Area either for what it's worth).

I could do this all in Mississippi, but I don't. It's beyond hope. That's on you. Been on you since 1865 and 1964 and every other year you treated a group of people like second class citizens, all while expecting them to perform at your level.

Othor Cain, Jackie Andrews, Socrates Garrett, the Anderson family, et al, all had to be mad that he has pissed in their fruit loops. I have no problem with minority set asides, but only if they are not enriching a small group of crooked power brocker instead of the people they were meant to empower. These fools that were shoved down Siemens throat have been sucking at the overflowing teet of the minority set aside for years. Can we please get oversight to ensure that future projects are not marked up by 15-30% by a "middle man" peddling his "set aside". Then he takes his 15-30% cut and walks away? Work to ensure that the minority working man gets the job, not a political power broker who forms a damn LLC, every time a contract comes up in order to get a set aside. Except for the entitled assholes at MCEC and New Learning Resources, who deserve a special place in hell for stealing TANF from the poor, nothing is worse than a small group of fraudulent power brokers raising the cost of business at the expense of the poor taxpayers of Jackson. I don't care if you are Red, Yellow, Black or White; stealing from the poor should be a capital offense.

Being a janitor in California might pay better than Mississippi but the cost of living is a lot higher. You are also small enough to fly under the e-Verify radar. Don't brag too much. Your day will come. By the way, the new coder from Mumbai left a mess for you on the unisex toilet.

"By the way, the new coder from Mumbai left a mess for you on the unisex toilet."

This is exactly what I'm talking about. You have zero self awareness. Homophobic and xenophobic. You hate what you fear and you fear what you don't understand. You dont understand that this "coder from Mumbai" wouldn't set foot in Mississippi. He doesn't have a reason to (what tech jobs are in Mississippi) and doesn't want to (intolerant dick heads like yourself). You and your kinfolk are happy with that, but don't realize that he represents a thriving economy, an expanding industry. This is why Mississippi has a brain drain. It's why it can't attract good jobs. Fools like yourself. Smart people get tired of it and leave for greener pastures.

My taxes aren't that much higher than they would be in Mississippi anyway. And I'm happy with how my tax dollars are spent. We have a great public education system (the Univ of Cal system is probably the best public system in the nation top to bottom), great roads, great healthcare, and a good social safety net.

Ms takes all it's money and blows it on kemper coal plants, beef farms, private prisons and private welfare systems. Keep those tax breaks up though. It's been working well for the last 20 years haha.

@ Holier than thou 7:29, California is not what you are projecting. What about the homelessness crisis, junkies living and dying in the streets at historic levels? Is that part of the good social net? If you don't like it here, deuces. Yes we, Mississippi, have our problems, but you couldn't pay me millions to move to California(sans a few small parts), to deal with those wackos. Can you explain why a lot of Californians are leaving and moving to many historically conservative states such as Texas, Colorado, etc at breakneck speed? Im curious to know if its the severely inflated cost of living, or the extreme liberals that are pushing even the more the moderate left leaning people out of there.

Anonymous said...

@ 10:21:

Colorado voted dem in 2016. Texas is turning purple and most california folks are moving to the bigger, solid blue cities in both of those states. They're not fleeing bc of "librul" policies in Cali, but the cost of living, which is high I admit. They also leave for those places bc they are very similar to CA: diverse, progressive, and an expanding tech market.

I never said California was perfect or heaven. But they take a much more pragmatic approach to their problems then Mississippi.

And that "if you dont like it here, deuces" attitude has resulted in a huge brain drain for Mississippi. It's a serious problem if you havent heard.

Anonymous said...

12:32 I lived in California for 21 years and the one word I never heard before your post was "pragmatic". California? Rich? yes, liberal? hell yes,
diverse? absolutely, open minded? no doubt. But pragmatic? California has been wealthy enough to try just about anything, no matter how crazy, or hair- brained the idea might be. Sometimes it's a fun ride but it's getting more and more expensive and a lot of middle class people are getting out. The state is changing and won't be able to afford the crazy San Francisco ideas
in the future. Some people hold their noses and come to states like Mississippi simply because the cost of living makes your retirement money go so much further. Eventually we'll all have to bail out California.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
