Legislature Wins in Stalemate with Governor John Bel Edwards!

The Governor’s lawsuit against the Legislature was dismissed on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, by the First Circuit Court of Appeals after the Governor failed to withdraw the suit. Attorney General Jeff Landry argued on behalf of the Legislature and the House Speaker, Clay Schexnayder. For the third time, a court of appeal ruled in favor of the Legislature and against the Governor.

After sixty-three House members signed and delivered a petition in October of 2020 to end the Governor’s executive order (134 JBE 2020) and terminate the public health emergency, the Governor immediately filed suit.

“This dismissal paves the way for a new petition to be prepared to terminate the executive branch’s overreach,” says Beryl Amedee (R-Houma), “and I will be pleased to add my signature.”

Attorney General Landry has voiced his willingness and readiness to assist and advise Speaker Schexnayder and the Legislature on a clear path forward.
