PORT ALLEN, LA (WAFB) - Three Port Allen city council members are taking Mayor Deedy Slaughter to court.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday, Hugh Riviere, R.J. Loupe and Garry Hubble claim Slaughter wrongfully managed a number of the city's finances.

The council members allege she illegally received money not budgeted for her salary, car allowances and travel expenses.  They want a judge to stop Slaughter from getting the funds and repay what she has already received.

Slaughter has yet to comment on the lawsuit.
