2009-B -0404      IN RE: STEPHEN P. CALLAHAN

On the 27th day of February, 2009, the following action was taken by the Supreme Court of Louisiana in the cases listed below:

WRIT APPLICATION NOT CONSIDERED:

2009-KK-0432      STATE OF LOUISIANA v. FRANK MCCOIL (Parish of Orleans)

 

On the 3rd day of March, 2009, the following actions were taken by the Supreme Court of Louisiana in the cases listed below:

TRANSFERRED TO THE DISTRICT COURT:

On the 4th day of March, 2009, the following actions were taken by the Supreme Court of Louisiana in the cases listed below:

WRIT APPLICATION GRANTED IN PART WITH ORDER:

2009-CK-0462      STATE OF LOUISIANA v. D.B. (Parish of Orleans)

INTERIM SUSPENSION ORDERED; SEE ORDER:

2009-B -0430      IN RE: RICHARD JOSEPH GUIDRY

WRIT APPLICATION DISMISSED ON RELATOR’S MOTION:

2009-KH-0201      STATE EX REL. PETER B. FERNANDEZ vs. STATE OF LOUISIANA (Parish of Jefferson

WRIT APPLICATIONS DENIED:

2008-KO-1527      STATE OF LOUISIANA v. WILBERT J. ROBINSON (Parish of Jefferson)
GUIDRY, J., recused

2008-KO-1528      STATE OF LOUISIANA v. VAWN BORDEN (Parish of Jefferson)

2008-K -1545      STATE OF LOUISIANA v. PAUL A. JAMES, JR. (Parish of St. Tammany)

2008-K -1675      STATE OF LOUISIANA v. MALCOLM T. PERKINS (Parish of Orleans)
JOHNSON, J., would grant.

2009-OC-0333      JERRY C. HILL v. JOHNNY B. ROSS, JR. (Parish of Orleans)
WEIMER, J., additionally concurs with reasons. Although Mr. Ross spends much of his application arguing the merits of the custody issue, the Orleans Parish court did not deny his petition for custody on the merits. Rather, that court merely denied his petition on the ground that proceedings were pending in West Baton Rouge Parish. Since that time, the West Baton Rouge Parish court has transferred the case to Orleans Parish. Thus, the Orleans Parish court can now reach the merits of Mr. Ross' custody petition provided he properly provokes a hearing in the Orleans Parish court.

2009-CJ-0410      STEPHANIE MAYORAL ARMOND v. KENNETH C. ARMOND, JR. (Parish of Orleans)
KIMBALL, C.J., would grant.
