Judge rejects bid to block buses parked at Old State Capitol
BATON ROUGE - A state judge has ruled the Capital Area Transit System can continue to park its buses in front of the Old State Capitol.
Judge Michael Caldwell on Tuesday rejected a state agency's request for a court order to stop them from blocking the property.
Secretary of State Tom Schedler sued CATS over its use of the curb directly in front of the historic building and museum as a bus hub where three or four buses at a time park all day long.
Caldwell sided with CATS CEO Bob Mirabito and the agency's attorney, who argued that they were granted the authority to park there by East Baton Rouge City Parish government, which owns and regulates the streets.
