On the 30th day of July, 2007, the following action was taken by the Supreme Court of Louisiana in the case listed below:
WRIT APPLICATION(S) GRANTED WITH ORDER:
2007-CC-1581 MABEL PINO, CURATRIX OF SHARON E. PINO AND TUTRIX OF AMBER BABIN v. TIMOTHY F. TOWNSEND (Parish of E. Baton Rouge)
KIMBALL, J., concurs. While I agree the trial court abused its discretion by requiring Sharon to testify, I disagree any alternative is necessary or appropriate, considering Sharon's status as an interdict and the health care provider's affidavit stating Sharon will not be able to provide meaningful testimony.
