Protestors of the "CATS" tax, may be out of luck.

Three judges unanimously ruled in favor of the Baton Rouge Transit system, saying that the tax is legal and that protestors filed the lawsuit "too late". State law requires objections to be filed within sixty days. The lawsuit was filed seventy-one days after it appeared on the ballot.

Some citizens included letters of protest when filing their taxes, claiming that the property tax was unconstitutional. In all, $20 million was in question.
