Judges Throws out Sand Beach vs City of Shreveport Lawsuit
A Caddo District Court Judge has ruled in favor of the City of Shreveport in the lawsuit over the water billing issue.
KEEL News spoke with Attorney Edwin Byrd who represented the city in this case.
Judge Ramon Lafitte has dismissed the lawsuit filed by Scott Pernici and Michael Wainwright in October of 2016. The Judge found that no confidential information was disclosed and that the City of Shreveport had the right to correct billing errors without paying Pernici and Wainwright the $1.8 million dollars they requested.
“I am very grateful today the Court ruled in the City’s favor,” said Mayor Ollie Tyler.
This ruling is the third in a series of four related lawsuits by these parties which have been resolved in favor of the City.
