ST. MARTIN — The Louisiana Supreme Court is being asked to review a decision made to keep a business open on Lake Martin.

St. Martin Parish Council is requesting a review of the ruling The Third Circuit Court of Appeal made in favor of Champagne's Cajun Swamp Tours and the Wharf on Lake Martin.

The Third Circuit Court of Appeal has ruled 3-2 in favor of a Lake Martin swamp tour and shop owner upholding a decision from a lower court allowing him to stay in business over the objections of the St. Martin Parish Government.

Last year, 16th Judicial District Judge Keith Comeaux denied a petition for injunctive relief filed against Bryan Champagne and his two businesses - Champagne's Cajun Swamp Tours and the Wharf on Lake Martin - both of
which are located in Breaux Bridge along the shores of Lake Martin.

The Daily Iberian is reporting the parish attorney sent the request earlier this week.
