Media Roundup on Supreme Court Win (2-22)

“It means that Lafayette gets to lead Louisiana into the future,” said City-Parish President Joey Durel.

LUS successfully defended its plan at the state district court level but lost when Naquin appealed to the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.

LUS appealed to the state Supreme Court, which issued a unanimous ruling Thursday that the 3rd Circuit had erred in its decision.

City-Parish President Joey Durel said his administration is still studying the ruling, but at first glance it appears that “we get to finally start doing what we started three years ago.”

"We get to start putting our packet together to go sell bonds and bring the greatest communication technology available in the world to the citizens of Lafayette," said City-Parish President Joey Durel.
Both KLFY and KATC promised more at 10:00-----

"Thursday may be called one the most important days in the history of Lafayette."
The KLFY page has a link to a movie. If you are a Mac or Linux user the weird, broken, proprietary javascript (NOT your system) prevents you from using their video. Unwrapping the stuff it calls reveals the real URL Pasting the URL directly into Windows Media Player works best. (The tech guys at KLFY really ought to be embarassed. Fixes for this are as simple as giving the users you refuse to adequately serve a direct link.)
