PORT ALLEN, LA (NBC33) — The drama in Port Allen continues between Mayor Deedy Slaughter and CFO Audrey McCain.
McCain is suing the mayor for wrongful termination.
Today, they were back in court; McCain's attorneys want the Port Allen City Council to be added as another plaintiff in this case, but the judge dismissed that request.
“It's not the Council’s responsibility,” stated Slaughter’s attorney, Ron Johnson. “The Council is only charged with passing legislature, but not authorized to file suit. The mayor has that responsibility as Chief Executive Officer. "
The judge also spoke about the City Council and the Mayor, stating that they simply need to start working together.
The trial is set for September 19.
