News for Thursday 062614

By Dave Graichen

 

U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman threw a curveball Wednesday at the lawyers arguing both sides of a case over gay marriage in Louisiana, deciding he will rule not only on whether same-sex marriages performed in other states should be recognized in Louisiana, but also on whether gay and lesbian couples should be able to wed in the state. The case before Feldman includes six couples, all of whom argue that Louisiana should recognize marriages performed elsewhere. The judge has not indicated when he will rule.

 

Judge Dee Drell saying yesterday Attorney Craig Davidson, can proceed in state court on the issue of whether there is a lien through which Davidson could collect a $1.3 million judgment against the city of Alexandria.  The Baton Rouge attorney claims he is owed  attorney fees from the city for services rendered in it’s lawsuit against Cleco. That contract with the city was later ruled void. Although Judge Drell was doubtful about whether the lien can “survive the demise” of an unenforceable contract, he said that matter could be heard in state court. A hearing is set for Friday before 9th District Judge Harry Randow on the lien issue.

 

Two alleged pimps were arrested in Alexandria last week during an FBI nationwide prostitution sting targeting commercial child sex trafficking. 35 year old Peter Metoyer of Alexandria and 40 year old Gregory Harris of Lafayette were charged with promoting prostitution and drug charges. Both remain in jail. Five adult prostitutes were issued citations and later were released in Alexandria.

 

Governor  Bobby  Jindal  has signed legislation that would allow the state to take casino winnings from someone who owes debts like child support and taxes.  The  Department  of  Children  and  Family  Services   can   already confiscate  casino  and  lottery winnings for child support payments, but this law would  take money for ANY debt owed to the state.

 

Louisiana State Police say  they  have  made two more arrests in the case  of the Vermillion Parish Sheriff's deputy  who  was  shot  and killed  on  Monday. Spokesman Steven Hammons says 51 year-old deputy and father of  2  Allen  Barres was murdered while he was mowing his lawn. The first two men arrested are charged with first-degree murder, and the suspects arrested just  today  are  charged with accessory after the fact. involving first degree murder.

 

Tuition won’t be rising at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Southern’s Law Center or Southern University at Shreveport this fall, but that’s because those schools didn’t meet the student success goals required to hike costs. Universities and community colleges that meet their yearly goals can increase tuition by up to 10 percent. Those who don’t can’t, and they lose 15 percent of their overall state funding. Last year, all of the colleges and universities met the performance targets. The three Southern University System colleges were the only three that failed to pass muster this year.

 

Summer is here, school is out and families are heading to the beach, where the motto is “come on in, the water’s fine.” Well, most of the time, anyway. The Natural Resource Defense Council’s 24th annual beach water quality report ranks Louisiana among the states with some of the highest percentage of water samples that exceed federal recommendations for beach swim advisories.

Louisiana was joined at the bottom of this list by Ohio, Alaska, Mississippi and Maine.

 

 A Jefferson Parish man is free  after spending 17 years in a state  prison for a crime he did not commit. Nathan Brown was convicted in 1997  in the attempted aggravated rape of a woman who was returning to her  Metairie apartment late at night. Innocence Project Attorney Vanessa  Potkin says D-N-A evidence exonerated the 40-year-old father of two. Potkin says Brown consistently maintained his innocence since he was  first arrested and also took the stand in his own defense. Brown was  finally released from prison Tuesday he's ready for life as a free man

 

Researchers predict the annual low-oxygen "dead zone" that forms off the  coast  of  Louisiana  every  summer  will be average size  this summer, which means roughly the size of the  state  of   Connecticut. Executive  Director of the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium, Nancy Rabalais,

they  anticipate  the  "dead zone" will cover between 46-hundred and 58-hundred square miles  this  year.  A goal has been set to reduce the annual size of the "dead zone"  to less than 1,930

square miles.

 

A lawsuit has reportedly been filed to strike down  the law allowing Tony the Tiger to remain in his enclosure at a truck  stop in Grosse Tete.  Former state Representative Warren Triche Jr. and  two  other Louisiana  residents  are suing the state, Tiger Truck Stop, and its owner, Michael Sandlin, saying the law is unconstitutional.

Alexandria's Garden District Neighborhood Foundation is hosting a Holiday Tour of Homes to include four homes in the Garden District. 2014 Marye Street was the home of General and Mrs. Omar Bradley when they resided in Alexandria during the Louisiana Maneuvers. 2022 Albert Street was modeled after actress Cathleen Moore's Beverly Hills home and it is said that Long was an occasional overnight guest in this house. 1703 Polk Street is built entirely of glass bottles circa 1945. More than 3,000 bottles were used to construct the house, which was originally used as a gift shop. The house at 1924 Barrister Street has been in the same family since it was built 100 years ago. What began as a one-story planter cottage, is now a grand colonial home.
