Judge throws out Sand Beach v. City of Shreveport lawsuit

Judge Ramon Lafitte, of the First Judicial District Court in Caddo Parish, dismissed Monday the water billing error lawsuit against the City of Shreveport and City officials.

The lawsuit was filed by Scott Pernici and Michael Wainwright in October of 2016.

The Court found that no confidential information was disclosed and that the City of Shreveport had the right to correct billing errors without paying Pernici and Wainwright $1.8 million.

“I am very grateful today the Court ruled in the City’s favor,” said Mayor Ollie Tyler via a press release.

This ruling is the third in a series of four related lawsuits by these parties which have been resolved in favor of the City.
