Slaughter to seek appeal of SU foundation ruling

1 year ago Wednesday, January 29, 2014 7:58:25 AM CST January 29, 2014 Wednesday, January 29 2014 Jan 29, 2014 in News

BATON ROUGE - An attorney for former Southern University System President Ralph Slaughter says he's asking an appeals court to reverse a state judge and let a jury decide whether Slaughter owes nearly half a million dollars to the private SU System Foundation.

District Judge Tim Kelley ordered Slaughter to repay the foundation $475,000, which included salary supplements totaling $400,000 and $75,000 in foundation money that Slaughter used to pay lawyer Jill Craft after he sued Southern over his 2009 dismissal.

The foundation contends in a lawsuit against Slaughter that he received the $400,000 in salary supplements without foundation board approval

Slaughter's attorney John McLindon wants the 1st Circuit Court of Appeal to overturn Kelley's 2012 rulings and send the case back to a district court jury to consider the matter.
