  1. This week in Louisiana history. August 13, 1717. Philippe d'Orleans accepts the resignation of Crozat and his charter.
  2. This week in New Orleans history. August 13, 2008, the indictments in the Danziger Bridge shootings were dismissed by District Judge Raymond Bigelow due to prosecutorial misconduct. Bigelow found that the prosecutors had wrongly instructed the grand jury, improperly used grand jury testimony against three of the defendants, and divulged grand jury testimony to a witness in the case.
