Roedel Parsons achieves amicus victory
Thereafter, the Firm authored an amicus brief to the Louisiana Supreme Court on behalf of two statewide industry groups. The brief argued that the First Circuit’s decision created both an inter- and intra-circuit split, was inconsistent with Louisiana’s wage garnishment statutory scheme, and negatively impacted Louisiana employers.
After the friend-of-the-court brief was filed, the Louisiana Supreme Court granted the writ application, vacated the judgment pro confesso, and granted a motion to reopen the garnishment proceedings. The case was then remanded to the trial court.
The brief was authored by Wayne J. Fontana, of the New Orleans office, and Bradley C. Guin, of the Baton Rouge office.
