After a winter storm that shut down much of Louisiana, the ex-mayor of New Orleans' trial will resume on Thursday, January 30, 2014 according to news reports.

Ex-mayor Ray Nagin's trial will resume tomorrow with the jury selection process. Nagin is on trial for 21 counts of misconduct while in office that includes accepting bribes, freebies, including trips to various locations in and outside the United States, wire fraud, bribery, and helping contractors secure city parish work unlawfully.

The trial for former mayor Ray Nagin started on Monday, January 27, 2014 with the process of seating a jury for the high-profile trial. The federal court closed on Tuesday due to a winter storm that closed the city of New Orleans and most of the state as a mixture of sleet, rain and snow fell Monday night and through Tuesday.

Roads were still frozen over on Wednesday, causing road closures and most businesses, including federal, state and city closures throughout the state, as driving was unsafe.

Judge Helen Berrigan will be presiding over the trial and will be speaking to one more juror before seating the jury.
