RE: Public Records Request by Louis R. Koerner, Jr. and the Jackson Avenue Foundation


Dear Assessor Williams:
 This is a a public records request for all records of the Orleans Parish Assessors Office,
including its predecessor for the 4th District, from October 26, 1979 to the present for the
Jackson Avenue Foundation or for Louis R. Koerner, Jr. I am happy to receive them in electronic
format. Please also include all records concerning the freezing and unfreezing of the assessed
value of my home at 1204 Jackson Avenue. As described below, I believe that these documents
from your office would be helpful to me in the work that I am doing for Netflix pilot/series.


After I formed the Jackson Avenue Foundation in 1995 and purchased 938-940 Jackson
Avenue at tax sale, Betty Jefferson, who owned property next door, pressured me into selling it
to nominees, so that she could demolish it and use it as a parking lot for her home.


When I asked for injunctive relief against the two owners, one of whom was her
daughter, she revoked my homestead exemption retroactively for four years. Although I was
successful in reversing this, I do not think that I have been successful in getting the money
returned. Eventually, her brother, Archie Jefferson, demolished the property — resulting in
further litigation. Ultimately, I was able to provide the U.S. Attorney with checks that Ms.
Jefferson used to pay taxes, etc., from public funds. I am informed that this turned out to be
important evidence that convinced her to plead guilty. I am still pursuing Archie Jefferson.
Your kind assistance is greatly appreciated.

Your very truly,

Louis R. Koerner, Jr.
