JENNIFER THIEN AND GINA NGUYEN v. BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY AND AGRICULTURAL AND MECHANICAL COLLEGE, HENRY A. GREMILLION, DDS, AND SANDRA CARLIN ANDRIEU, PHD


In Re: Board of Supervisors of Louisiana State University, applying for supervisory writs, 19th Judicial District Court, Parish of East Baton Rouge, No. 657157. BEFORE: WHIPPLE, C.J., GUIDRY, WELCH, HOLDRIDGE, AND CHUTZ, JJ.

WRIT GRANTED WITH ORDER. The trial court's ruling which denied the motion for suspensive appeal filed by defendant, the Board of Supervisors of Louisiana State University, is reversed. Under the facts and circumstances of this case, we find the trial court abused its discretion in denying the motion for suspensive appeal. Thus, the writ application is granted for the limited purpose of remanding this matter to the trial court with instructions to grant a suspensive appeal to defendant, the Board of Supervisors of Louisiana State University.
