JR Ball: The curious case of Lea Anne Batson

The why remains a mystery, but it’s obvious that Metro Councilman LaMont Cole and his council cabal—which notably includes Republican Chandler Loupe—want City-Parish Attorney Lee Anne Batson gone.

In his new column, Business Report Executive Editor J.R. Ball raises the questions that aren’t being asked about the Batson situation, like whether she has—or is—doing anything that’s legally wrong or in violation of legal ethics.

If there’s evidence she has, Cole and company have yet to provide it, Ball writes. What is clear, however, is what’s playing out is about more than Batson’s job performance.
