Johnette L. Martin v. St. Bernard Parish Government, Through Its President Charles Ponstein, and Lynn Dean, Individually and in His Capacity as Former Parish President
I agree that defendant's writ application in this matter, challenging the lower courts' denial of its motion for summary judgment, was properly denied. However, I write separately to strongly encourage the district court to swiftly move this case toward a resolution.
Plaintiff's claim arises out of her termination as parish attorney in 1995—over twenty years ago. I urge the district court to actively manage this litigation and set necessary deadlines for discovery and motions so that a trial on plaintiff's suit, pending for twenty years, can be scheduled soon.
JOHNSON, C.J., additionally concurs.
