Port Allen Chief Financial Officer Audrey McCain has asked a state district judge to hold Mayor Demetric Slaughter in contempt of court. That's according to documents filed April 4 in 18th Judicial District Court.
McCain charges that Slaughter has disobeyed a court order issued to prevent the mayor from interfering in McCain's daily job responsibilities.
The Advocate reports McCain's petition accuses Slaughter of ignoring District Judge Alvin Batiste's Feb. 20 preliminary injunction blocking Slaughter from taking adverse employment actions against McCain. The judge issued the injunction after he nullified the mayor's Feb. 11 attempt to fire McCain.
Slaughter advised City Attorney Victor Woods that she disputes all the claims against her that McCain listed in her contempt petition to Batiste.
