GRETNA - Deliberations should begin Wednesday for the jury deciding the Hurricane Katrina flooding case in Jefferson Parish.

They are deciding whether local government and former Parish President Aaron Broussard are liable for damage to property after drainage pumps went unused.

Jurors were sent home Tuesday, and attorneys are expected to give their closing arguments Wednesday morning.

If the jury finds the parish and Broussard liable for flooding damage, the trial will then move to the question of monetary damages. If the jury finds no liability, the trial is over.
