Court date set for Lafourche Parish President Charlotte Randolph's ethics fine appeal


THIBODAUX, Louisiana — A court date has been set for Lafourche Parish President Charlotte Randolph to argue the unfairness of her ethics fines stemming from renting out her Grand Isle camp to BP.

The Courier reports ( ) the 1st Circuit Court of Appeal in Baton Rouge will hear the case on May 22.

Following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Randolph rented out her Grand Isle camp to BP, which the state ethics board ruled was in violation of state law. Randolph was fined $5,000 and ordered to repay the $50,000 she received for rent.

A three-judge panel, the same judges who fined Randolph, will review a transcript of the previous hearings along with written and oral arguments from Randolph's representatives and lawyers for the ethics administration before making a decision.
