Evangeline Parish Desegregation Attorney Asking For More Than $1 Million Fee
A desegregation case in Evangeline Parish is wrapping up, and now the deseg attorney wants the parish to pay up.
Opelousas attorney Marion Overton White is asking for $1.6-million. This comes just months after White agreed to accept $800,000 from neighboring St. Landry parish for that parish's deseg case.
White says he achieved outstanding results in a complex and politically difficult case that few attorneys would have taken.
