Parish Attorney already on administrative leave, lawyers agree

  // Tuesday, 19 August 2014 18:08 //

The Metro Council was expected to hold an emergency meeting Wednesday to vote on putting Roper on administrative leave, a meeting called after what some council members and staff described as Roper’s erratic behavior on Friday when she abruptly tried to fire her second-in-command, Lea Anne Batson, accusing her of disloyalty.

Roper’s attorney Wade Shows, who previously served as parish attorney, subsequently filed court documents asking District Court Judge Michael Caldwell to find the Metro Council in contempt for violating his earlier injunction preventing the public body from taking a vote to remove her from her post.
