It looks like former Lafayette City Councilman Chris Williams will get his day in court in January.
According to court records, Williams' civil suit against Lafayette Housing Authority is set for a trial date on Jan. 21, at 1:30 p.m. in front of 15th Judicial District Court Judge Edward Broussard.
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.
