Monroe Council Lawsuit Hearing on for Tuesday

A hearing on a federal lawsuit scheduled for Tuesday, January 3, 2012 at 9:00 AM will be held as ordered by U. S. District Judge Robert James, Lincoln Parish News Online learned moments ago.

A status teleconference on the suit was held this morning, and it was speculated that a settlement might be reached and preclude the hearing, but no settlement was reached, sources said.

The lawsuit was filed earlier this month to try and have elections for the Monroe City Council moved back to a March/April schedule as provided for in state law. The elections were rescheduled for November of 2012 after a deadline for redistricting the council was missed earlier this year.
