98-CC- 2062 TIMOTHY JOHN BULLER v. MARY ROBIN ARD BULLER (Parish of St. Landry)

LEMMON, J. - dissents. While proof of intent to change domicile by written declaration according to La.

Here, the trial judge determined that relator intended to establish a domicile in St. Landry Parish, and there was evidence to support that finding. The court of appeal erred in reversing that purely factual finding.
