Lafayette City-Parish Consolidated Government v. Bendel Partnership
- Date Filed
- Original Court
- 15th Judicial District Court
- Current Court
- Louisiana Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit
Engineer Pamela Granger was poised to receive $2.6 million if she certified Lafayette City-Parish Consolidated Government met certain requirements to expropriate Bendel Partnership's property via quick take, an expedited process that allows a government entity to take immediate possession of a property and reduces judicial oversight.
In this brief, IJ argues Granger's financial stake in the expropriation violated both the U.S. and Louisiana Constitutions.
