1999 News Releases

News Release #033

FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE

NEWS RELEASE # 033

FROM: CLERK OF SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA

The opinions handed down on the 16th day of April, 1999 , are as follows:

BY CALOGERO, C.J. :

98-CA- 1235 ENTERGY GULF STATES, INC. v. LOUISIANA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION, ET AL (Parish of East Baton Rouge)

For the reasons assigned, we reverse that part of the prospective rate order reducing the Company's Louisiana jurisdictional revenue requirement by $6.116 million by disallowing 1994 O&M expenses incurred to produce savings, and remand the case to the Commission for a determination of the amortization period appropriate for the Company to recover these expenses. Thus, the Company's contention that the district court erred by refusing to admit evidence regarding this adjustment is moot. We further reverse the refund portion of the rate order to the extent it included $3.643 million related to the revenue annualization adjustment. Otherwise, the Company is ordered to implement the remaining amount of the refund without further delay. In all other respects, Order No. U-21485 is affirmed. Additionally, the district court's ruling excluding additional evidence regarding the Company's capital structure is affirmed.

REVERSED IN PART AND REMANDED.

TRAYLOR, J. - not on panel. Rule IV, Part 2, §3.

LEMMON, J. - dissents in part and assigns reasons.


98-C - 1810 BRADLEY JACKSON v. IBERIA PARISH GOVERNMENT

(Office of Workers' Compensation District # 9)

For the aforementioned reasons, we reverse the judgment of the court of appeal and remand to the hearing officer for further proceedings consistent with the opinions expressed herein.

REVERSED AND REMANDED.

TRAYLOR, J. - not on panel. Rule IV, Part 2, §3.

PER CURIAM:

98-K - 2281 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. HENRY L. REYNOLDS (Parish of Jefferson) (Distribution of Cocaine - Two Counts)

Accordingly, the decision of the court of appeal is vacated and set aside. Defendant's convictions and sentences are reinstated.

JOHNSON, J. - not on panel. Rule IV, Part 2, §3.
