Pierce O'Donnell, the lead attorney in the case brought by victims of Hurricane Katrina against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, continues to assert that the federal government's criminal charges against him should be dismissed, according to court documents. O'Donnell was indicted last year on charges that he reimbursed employees of his law firm and others for giving $26,000 in campaign contributions to a committee supporting a presidential candidate, believed to be then-U.S. Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C.
