La. Supreme Court refuses to hear appeal in Mary Roper case

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The state's highest court has ended an ex-parish attorney's lawsuit against the East Baton Rouge Metro Council Friday.

The Louisiana Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal of Mary Roper.

She filed a lawsuit two years ago asking a judge to step in and prevent the council from firing her.

The council voted for her removal after allegations she shared copy-written city-parish software with her husband.
