DescriptionLouisiana's new attorney general says he inherited some "curious" cases from his predecessor, Charles Foti, who teamed up with campaign donors on his way out of office to file a pair of multimillion-dollar antitrust lawsuits.

Attorney General James "Buddy" Caldwell also inherited a case in which Foti is accused of illegally contracting with some of the same private lawyers to represent the state in a lawsuit involving the Road Home rebuilding program.

Caldwell, through a spokeswoman, said he is reviewing Foti's lawsuits and contracts with private lawyers and hasn't decided how many cases to keep. He wouldn't identify the cases of interest, but said they were filed during Foti's final days in office last month.
