CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS Plaintiff-Appellee
CURT EYSINK, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE LOUISIANA WORKFORCE COMMISSION AND THE CITY OF RUSTON Defendants-Appellants
Originally Appealed from the Third Judicial District Court for the Parish of Lincoln, Louisiana Trial Court No. 56654 Honorable Cynthia T. Woodard, Judge
KEAN MILLER By: S. Price Barker Megan L. Reinkemeyer, Counsel for Appellant The City of Ruston
J. JEROME BURDEN Counsel for Appellant The Louisiana Workforce Commission
ESCAMILLA & PONECK By: Wesley E. Johnson, Counsel for Appellee Christopher Williams
Before BROWN, STEWART, DREW, MOORE and PITMAN, JJ.
Our original opinion in this matter assessed court costs in the amount of $2, 096.64, to be split equally between the Louisiana Workforce Commission and the City of Ruston, pursuant to La. R.S. 13:5112(A). However, La. R.S. 5112(D) states:
D. This law shall not apply to, nor shall the administrator of Louisiana Employment Security Law be cast for any court costs in, any judicial review proceeding under the provisions of R.S. 23:1634.
Therefore, we revise our original opinion to omit the assessment of court costs to the defendant, Louisiana Workforce Commission. The City of Ruston is still responsible for ½ of the court costs, which amounts to $1, 048.32. With these modifications, the application for rehearing is denied.
