District Attorney Warren Montgomery’s Statement on Civil Suit Ruling

I appreciate the time, effort, and commitment the judge gave to this case. It was important to me that my obligations under the law to serve as the legal adviser to parish government be clarified by the court. My conscience is clear that I did the right thing in filing this lawsuit, based on our interpretation of the law and the vote of the people rejecting Proposition 5 in November of 2015. In the coming days, I will analyze the judge’s ruling and make the appropriate decisions.
