(Opinion Oct. 16, 2002, 5th Cir., 308 F.3d 485)

Before REAVLEY, BARKSDALE and CLEMENT, Circuit Judges.

Because the underlying opinion, Zaffuto v. City of Hammond, 308 F.3d 485 (5th Cir. 2002), reverses in part and remands for a new trial, the district court's award of attorney's fees to plaintiffs is VACATED. On remand, the district court shall, at the appropriate time, re-determine whether and to what extent the plaintiffs are entitled to attorney's fees.

In all other respects, the petition for rehearing is DENIED.
