Port Allen, LA Update – 7/31/13

Sept. 19 trial date set in lawsuit against Port Allen mayor

PORT ALLEN — State District Judge Alvin Batiste on Wednesday set a Sept. 19 trial date for Port Allen Chief Financial Officer Audrey McCain’s wrongful termination lawsuit against Mayor Demetric “Deedy” Slaughter.

Batiste set the trial after denying portions of Slaughter’s petition to have McCain’s case dismissed from the 18th Judicial District Court.

McCain has asked the court to grant a permanent injunction nullifying Slaughter’s February attempt to fire her.

Batiste on Feb. 20 blocked the mayor’s attempt to dismiss McCain and ordered her reinstated on the grounds Slaughter lacked authority to dismiss McCain without City Council approval because McCain is a city government department head.
