FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE

NEWS RELEASE # 037

FROM: CLERK OF SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA

The opinions handed down on the 22nd day of March, 1996 , are as follows:

BY LEMMON, J. :

95-C - 0801 RUMAE NELL ANDRUS v. STATE FARM MUTUAL AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE COMPANY (Parish of Lafayette)

For these reasons, the portion of the judgment of the court of appeal awarding $125,000 for past and future physical pain and suffering is reduced to $75,000. The remainder of the judgment of the court of appeal is set aside, and the judgment of the trial court is reinstated.

Judge Lemmie O. Hightower, Court of Appeal, Second Circuit, sitting by assignment in the vacancy created by the resignation of Dennis, J.

VICTORY, J. not on panel. Rule IV, Part 2, Section 3.

HIGHTOWER, J. - dissents from that part of the opinion holding any physical pain award of less that $75,000 to be unacceptable, but readily concurs in all other aspects.
 

PER CURIAM :

95-K - 1409 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. BILLY CAMPBELL AND WILSON CAMPBELL (Parish of Evangeline) (Attempted Jury Tampering)

Accordingly, while we affirm that part of the Third Circuit's decision reversing relators' convictions and sentences, we vacate the court of appeal's order discharging relators from custody and remand this case to the district court for further proceedings in accord with the law.

WATSON, J., - dissents for the reasons assigned by Justice Lemmon.

LEMMON, J., - dissents and assigns reasons.
