New Orleans' new airport terminal won’t open until next May, thanks to a sinking sewer line that will require repairs. The terminal had been set to open in late February.

Amazon has unveiled new gadgets aimed at realizing its goal of putting its Alexa voice assistant anywhere its customers are. Among the new products are an 

Amazon-branded microwave. It works with Echo devices — and can be told to defrost a bag of frozen peas or reheat a cup of coffee.  

Actor Brad Pitt's foundation has sued a New Orleans architect, saying defective design work led to leaks and other flaws in homes built for residents of an area that was among the hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina.

The lawsuit claims damages caused by architect John C. Williams could cost Pitt's Make It Right foundation more than $15 million. The foundation paid Williams' firm millions of dollars to produce architectural drawings for more than 100 homes under the program.
