Today, our long-awaited day in court came to pass. We cannot discuss today without thanking everyone involved in this process: our legal committee who worked tirelessly to refine our arguments; our plaintiffs who put themselves out in the public eye in the name of their personal dignity as well as the greater good; and our law firm, Stone Pigman Walther Wittman, who graciously offered to hold our hands on this journey.
Special thanks must be made to Dalton Courson, our lead counsel, who worked along side with Lesli Harris, John Landis, Brooke Tigchelaar and Maurine Wall, as well as countless others who assisted us on this road. With all of that being said, we are so happy and grateful we were able to have such a great argument.
Judge Feldman asked great questions of both sides, and we are as confident as ever in our legal position and the ultimate resolution of these issues in our favor. The journey isn’t over; it’s just begun. But we could not have gotten this far without everyone’s support. Thanking you for all you do.
We would love to celebrate with you this evening at The Rusty Nail located at 1100 Constance Street, New Orleans, Louisiana from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
