NEW ORLEANS -- Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman’s son works for a small New Orleans law firm run by an old pal of his father’s that also has a lucrative contract with the sheriff’s office.

Marlin Gusman Jr. has been working for the Hurndon & Gaffney firm, which specializes in FEMA work, for many years, said partner Mike Gaffney, who added that the younger Gusman does no work related to the firm’s contract with the sheriff’s office.

He stressed that Gusman Jr. is not an employee of the firm, but rather a contractor who submits monthly bills, though he works out of the Hurndon & Gaffney offices.
