More public documents finally turned over in Shreveport water scandal
SHREVEPORT, La. – More documents are available for viewing a day after they were promised to be delivered by the City of Shreveport and weeks after they were legally due. Private attorney Julie Lafargue turned them over early this afternoon.
After probing the first batch of documents, Real Shreveport questioned whether there were still some documents being withheld. Julie Lafargue, who has been hired to handle public records related to the water under-billing error, said she verified no documents are being held at this time.
Lafargue is also representing the City of Shreveport in the lawsuit filed by Sand Beach Properties, LLC.
