FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE  


NEWS RELEASE # 041


FROM: CLERK OF SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA



The Opinions handed down on the 30th day of April, 2004, are as follows:


BY KIMBALL, J.:

2003-KK-2362       STATE OF LOUISIANA v. THOMAS BOBO (Parish of Ouachita)

(Distribution of Heroin, Four Counts; Attempted Distribution of Heroin, One Count; Conspiracy to Distribute Heroin, One Count; Extradition)

For the foregoing reasons, the judgment of the trial court is therefore reversed, the motion to quash is ordered granted, and defendant is discharged from custody on the present charges.

REVERSED.

VICTORY, J., dissents and assigns reasons.

TRAYLOR, J., dissents and assigns reasons.

KNOLL, J., dissents for reasons assigned by

Justice Traylor.

WEIMER, J., additionally concurs with reasons.


BY WEIMER, J.:

2003-C -1766       ALMA M. JONES v. GENERAL MOTORS CORPORATION

(Office of Workers' Compensation District 1-W)

Having found GM is not entitled to a credit, we reverse the portion of the judgment awarding a dollar-for-dollar credit. In light of the workers' compensation benefits previously paid by GM from March 29, 1999, through May 21, 1999, we amend the judgment to award Jones temporary total disabilities from May 22, 1999, (instead of from March 29, 1999) through June 7, 1999. The portion of the judgment, as amended by the court of appeal, awarding supplemental earnings benefits from June 8, 1999, through February 9, 2000, is unaffected by this decision.

REVERSED, AMENDED AND RENDERED.

VICTORY, J., dissents and assigns reasons.


PER CURIAM:


2004-CA-0671       GARY L. RING v. STATE OF LOUISIANA, ET AL. (Parish of E.

Baton Rouge)

For the reasons assigned, the judgment of the district court declaring La. R.S. 32:389(C)(4)(a) unconstitutional is vacated and set aside. The case is remanded to the district court for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
