A state District Court judge has shielded from public view two lawsuits filed in recent days against the Louisiana Board of Ethics.
According to 19th Judicial District Court records, one of the lawsuits was filed by Gray Sexton, former longtime ethics administrator.
Court records show the other was filed by Democrat Caroline Fayard, who lost a bid for lieutenant governor last year. The lawsuit’s plaintiffs also list the state Democratic Party’s political action arm and some of its contributors, including Fayard’s mother and father. Fayard, a political newcomer, lost a runoff to Republican Jay Dardenne. She has indicated she may run for secretary of state this fall.
