ERB Transfers Prosecutorial Function to Office of Inspector General

At its December 21, 2016, board meeting, the City of New Orleans Ethics Review BoardĀ reconsidered the manner in which ethics complaints are investigated, prosecuted, and adjudicated. (For more on the issues associated with the past procedure, see this post.)Ā Because the Board’s framework commingled the prosecutorial and adjudicative functions within the Ethics Review Board, the Board amended its rules to bifurcate those functions. The amendments are here (PDF downloads):

2016-12-21 DRAFT Ordinance for OIG Ethics Enforcement
2016-12-21 Revised Rules for Ethics Review Board

The ERB will ask the New Orleans City Council to adopt the draft ordinance at an upcoming Council meeting.
