BATON ROUGE- Appellate court justices refused Southern University's request for a rehearing involving its former system president, Ralph Slaugher.

In September, the First Circuit overturned a state district judge's ruling allowing Slaughter's home and other property to be seized by the university's Foundation to satisfy debt. The district judge ruled he illegally transferred assets to his wife's name before the $475,000 ruling against him. The original case was related to allegations Slaughter misappropriated funds while he led the University.

The most recent ruling was in Slaughter's favor but Southern's foundation has said it will fight judgments against the organization. The next step would be to appeal to the Louisiana Supreme Court.
