The Lafayette Housing Authority is seeking to have a lawsuit filed against it by former Lafayette councilman Chris Williams dismissed.
According to the Lafayette Parish Clerk of Court's Office, the LHA's attorney, Alyce Richard, entered the motion on Thursday. The details of the motion were not immediately available.
KATC reached out to Richard for comment, but she was not available.
Williams filed the suit against the LHA in 2011, seeking more than $19,000 in wages he claims he was owed under a contract between the authority and his company, Lafayette Career and Training Development.
In his petition, Williams says the firm was contracted to provide services under the Disaster Housing Assistance Payment program (DHAP) in January, 2008. In August, 2010, several DHAP counselors, including Williams, were fired without notice, a move that Williams claims violates his contract.
