City of N.O. requests $100 million to overhaul Charity Hospital

NEW ORLEANS - The City of New Orleans wants $100 million from the state to overhaul the old Charity Hospital building.

According to our partners at The Lens, Mayor Mitch Landrieu submitted a request for the money Friday.

Landrieu wants to move City Hall and Civil District Court to the Charity Hospital site.

Civil District Court judges would rather see a new courthouse built for them on the back side of Duncan Plaza.
