A judge has ruled in favor of a restraining order filed by St. Landry Parish President Bill Fontenot against the parish council. The order was filed after the parish council overrode Fontenot's vetoes of five ordinances Fontenot says took administrative power away from his office. The council voted Thursday to rescind four of those ordinances, but the ordinance forming a commission to oversee the Delta Grand Theatre, was kept in place. According to Council Chairman Wayne Ardoin, lawyers from both sides will now file briefs for a future hearing.
