Written by Quinn Welsch on . Posted in Local

The Port Allen City Council declined to pay $51,941 in legal fees to law firm Phelps Dunbar with a vote of 3-2 during its Wednesday, June 10, meeting.

Phelps Dunbar attorney Dennis Blunt brought the legal fees the City Council’s attention after his firm represented the city Mayor Demetric “Deedy” Slaughter during the wrongful termination of Audrey McCain, the city’s chief financial officer, in February 2013. The outstanding invoices were originally brought to the Port Allen committee meeting on June 3.
