Lawsuit filed against Satsuma incorporation

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A small community in Livingston Parish is trying to incorporate, and there is now a legal battle.

A lawsuit was filed by an opponent Wednesday seeking to block the Satsuma incorporation vote from the March ballot.

The group against the incorporation says "Save Satsuma" coerced people to sign the petition and broke state laws.

In response, the "Save Satsuma" group posted on Facebook saying, "If you can't win honestly, file lies with the court, tying things up until those without your money cannot afford the legal battle and have to give up."
