BATON ROUGE- The First Circuit Court of Appeal reversed a State District Court Judge's decision against former Southern University System President Ralph Slaughter.

The Judge last year said Slaughter's home and other property can be seized by the Foundation to satisfy debt. It's money he's accused of misappropriating while he led the University.

The Judge ruled he illegally transferred assets to his wife's name before the $475,000 ruling against him.

Today's decision by the First Circuit reverses the trial court's decision.

Preston Castille, an attorney for Southern University said the University will appeal. They have 30 days to file their appeal.
