St. George Fires Back at Lawsuit
WBRZ - Court documents

STG Organizers contend that SWB, LaMont Cole, and ME Cormier have no standing in the lawsuit contesting the election that incorporated STG on Oct. 12, 2019, and also MOP cannot act as the attorney for SWB w/o authorization from the MetCo. Also, the C-P Plan of Government restricting any future incorporations is unconstitutional.

You know they dirtied up the water on purpose. If I’m Morvant, I’m having the standing hearing in the next month.

I’ve read some of it and those anti-St. George people are in for a rude awakening.

Democrats hate the will of the people. How do people continue to vote Democrat. It makes no sense to me.

Any way it can be a counter suit and sue those NBR a-holes for good measure?

Some of the big financial backers of the anti-St. George movement are some of the biggest Republican movers-and-shakers in the parish.

ETA: I know Christina Peck, one of the attorneys for St. George. I would rather tangle with an insane bobcat than that woman.

re: St. George Fires Back at Lawsuit
Fighting the standing issue seems like Don Quixote fighting the windmill. RS 33:4 Gives standing to municipal governments, individual members of municipal governments, residents of the area to be incorporated, or landowners in the area to be incorporated. Spending money fighting standing seems like poor strategy, because even if Broome's suit is illegitimate, there are many many opponents with standing under 33:4 who can file subsequent suits.

It seems the better strategy is to fight the suit on facts where St George might be stronger.

Interesting. What part of the plan of government does this refer to? I'm assuming the argument is that it conflicts with the state constitution's guidelines for incorporation in some way?

I don’t believe they challenged Ungelsby’s standing.

Besides challenging Broome’s. Cole’s and Cormier’s standing they also challenged assertions made in the lawsuit itself.

Furthermore they also asked the court to declare SG a municipality as of 11/23.

There’s a lot to chew on beside standing if the four plaintiffs.

The court has previously ruled that EBR’s ordinance to limit cities in EBR is contrary to the state constitution.

Well if Unglesby has standing the suit is legitimate. So again why litigate points that aren't in question? They are begging for money on Facebook, yet they are willing to spend that money on points that don't matter?

St. George needs better legal representation.

Broome wants to amend the PoG to forbid future incorporations within the parish, a direct violation of the state's constitution.

Plan of Government limits incorporated cities in EBR to 4. That is probably unconstitutional. I say probably as in "it is unconstitutional but you never know what a lower court will do."

Adam, the OP linked the response to the lawsuit. Did you read it?
