CALOGERO, C.J. - would grant and docket.

LEMMON, J. - would grant and docket.

96-KH- 0519 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. CLARENCE FOY (Parish of Orleans)

CALOGERO, C.J. - dissenting. I would grant the writ and order the district court to comply with our previous order of February 2, 1996. State ex rel. Foy v. State 96-0225 (La. 2/2/96), ---So.2d---. La.C.Cr.P. art. 930.1 plainly and explicitly requires the district court to furnish an inmate with a copy of the judgment granting or denying relief "and written or transcribed reasons for the judgment ...." (Emphasis added.) See State ex rel. Baker v. State, 95-2228 (La. 12/8/95), ---So.2d---; State ex rel. Whittaker v. Lombard, 559 So.2d 116 (La. 1990). While the reasons for judgment need not necessarily rise to the level of per curiam comments to assignments of error filed in the district court in connection with an appeal, see La.C.Cr.P. art. 844(D); La.C.Cr.P. art. 916(1), the court must comply with the present wording of art. 930.1 and its explicit directive to issue reasons for judgment, even without a request by the inmate. The legislature of course has the right to change this requirement should it perceive it to be unduly burdensome on district courts.

VICTORY, J. - dissents for reasons assigned by Calogero, C.J.
