2002 News Releases

News Release #056

FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE

NEWS RELEASE # 056

FROM: CLERK OF THE SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA

 

On the 15th day of July, 2002 , the following action was taken by the Supreme Court of  Louisiana in the case(s) listed below:

 

APPLICATION FOR PERMISSION TO TAKE THE BAR EXAM DENIED :
 

2002-OB- 1904 IN RE: ROBYN MARY ROGERS



On the 16th day of July, 2002 , the following action was taken by the Supreme Court of Louisiana in the case(s) listed below:

 

WRIT APPLICATION(S) GRANTED WITH ORDER :

2002-KK- 1963 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. BRIAN R. ATKINS (Parish of Orleans)

CALOGERO, C.J., would deny the writ.

JOHNSON, J., would deny the writ.

 

TRANSFERRED TO DISABILITY INACTIVE STATUS:

2002-OB- 1872 IN RE: JOHN J. PACE

See Order.

 

STAY RECALLED; WRIT APPLICATION DENIED :

2002-CC- 1883 KATHY BROWNE, ET AL. v. DEGAULLE MANOR, LTD., ET AL. (Parish of Orleans)

KNOLL, J., dissents with reasons. I would grant the writ and remand this matter to the court of appeal. LSA-C.C.P. art. 2124(C) requires the court of appeal to independently review the amount of security. Without an evaluation of factors such as the defendants' net worth, the court of appeal abused its discretion by not ascertaining whether the amount of security in this case precludes the defendants from their opportunity for a meaningful appeal. See Modjeski & Masters v. Carter, 485 U.S. 1031 (1988). If the defendants' net worth were to prove less than the amount of security ordered by the trial court, their inability to post security would be tantamount to an arbitrary denial of their access to the courts, violating their right to due process. Therefore, I would remand this matter to the court of appeal for such determination.

 

WRIT APPLICATION(S) DENIED :

2002-KK- 1849 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. JOSEPH GLENN, IV (Parish of Jefferson)

CALOGERO, C.J., recused.

WEIMER, J., would grant the petition and assigns reasons.

 

2002-OB- 1923 IN RE: RAYMOND JOHNSON
