News Release #077

 

FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE
NEWS RELEASE #77
   
FROM: CLERK OF SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA  

 

The Opinion handed down on the 16th day of November, 2010, is as follows:

 

BY CLARK, J.:

2010-KK-2344 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. SCOTT ALLEN COOPER (Parish of Lafayette)

Retired Judge Philip C. Ciaccio, assigned as Justice ad hoc, sitting for Chief Justice Catherine D. Kimball.

For the foregoing reasons, we reverse the judgment of the court of appeal and, like the district court, find the method of allotment of non-capital criminal cases in the Fifteenth Judicial District does not offend the principle of random allotment, the uniform rules for district courts, statutory law or the constitutional rights of a criminal defendant. In keeping with the expedited nature of this proceeding, we order that an application seeking rehearing of this matter must be filed no later than 12:00 noon on Monday, November 22, 2010.
REVERSED AND REMANDED.
