On April 20, 2023 Judge Raymond S. Childress heard arguments and testimony regarding the Writ of Mandamus and whether or not Defendants were responsive to Plaintiffs' public records requests. Judge Childress took the matter under advisement.

On May 2, 2023 Judge Childress' ruling was filed and states (in part), “The Court finds that the City of Bogalusa failed to follow the requirements of the Public Records statutes, and that they acted unreasonably in this matter. The defendants are cast in Judgment for plaintiff's attorney fees in the amount of $2500.00, court costs of $1038.50, and penalties in the amount of $500.00.”
