A hearing on a Motion to Strike on behalf of William Sumlin was delayed in a Ruston courtroom of Third Judicial (Lincoln, Union Parishes) District Court yesterday afternoon. The hearing was reset for January 17, 2017.
According to US Legal.com, a motion to strike is defined as a party’s request to the court to delete insufficient defenses or immaterial, redundant, impertinent, or scandalous statements from an opponent’s pleading. It is also used to request elimination of inadmissible evidence to be deleted from the record.
Sumlin is scheduled to be tried in March on charges of indecent behavior with a juvenile.
Presiding was Divison B Judge Tommy Rogers.
