Interesting, thanks.

I would think that Orgeron's camp would claim that it will be unreasonable to subpoena him given that he has already provided his testimony via written statement, as an option earlier afforded to him.

I didn't realize they were alleging mail fraud and bribery in their lawsuit.

Does he have that right?

I'm not sure. He said that it was 128 pages. Wire fraud was also part of it. It sounds like the attorney for Lewis is just throwing as much shite into the suit as possible.

And let's be honest, do we want to live in a world where a woke senate committee can start firing state employees based on their recommendations? I know I don't want to open up that box


Lot of mouth breathers on this board not seeing the big picture here. Yeah LSU fricked up and let’s point and laugh.....but this could set a dangerous precedent

I would bet they'd try to quash any subpoena that was issued to Orgeron given there is pending litigation in an actual court of law, and his testimony in a senate hearing would be highly prejudicial. Whether or not they are successful, I honestly do not know. I also don't know who would hear such a motion. Maybe the senate judiciary? I don't always understand/know all the procedures in these political "court" settings

Now he's saying this will probably take 3 years to reach resolution.

Sounds pretty serious now.

I'm sure they can recommend LSU fire numerous people. However, the administration has already proven that they care nothing about doing what is right, and are interested only in their own welfare. LSU would laugh at any "recommendations" made by the committee.

Based on my cursory research, federal sexual harassment lawsuits must be filed within 180 days of the last harassment. To my understanding, all of these allegations are pursuant to how Les Miles treated her. It's been a lot longer than 180 days since he worked at LSU. I'm sure they'll try to tap dance around that, but I do think that is going to be a concerning issue for Lewis and her lawyers. (or should be at least)

Well, it's being filed in federal court, and the courts are already back-logged to shite because of COVID when they move slower as hell in a normal world.

Good point.

All of this makes it seem highly unlikely that he will be forced to appear, and that as stated earlier, this is merely more political theater.

re: Louisiana lawmakers looking into subpoena for Orgeron, say committee can recommend firing
He is repeating what he said earlier now about how the lawsuit (which he only would have time to skim) looks pretty well written and it's obvious these lawyers have done this before.

He thinks she definitely has some meat to her case but the lawyers are being very aggressive.

Sounds about right to me.

Yeah he was laughing at some of the things like bribery, mail fraud, wire fraud and filing for civil RICO. He ended up saying that it was drafted well but that there were defendents that had no business being in the suit. He also said that the 50 million number was meaningless.

The $50 million dollar figure still makes me LOL regardless if she has a case or not

I'm no lawyer but I have to think as a longtime employee in the AD who has been under Ausberry for many years that if she has the goods on Ausberry denying her raises and promotions and can prove he made the statements she claims he did then she has a pretty meaty case in that regard.

The wire fraud, bribery, RICO shite is probably all just smoke but as the lawyer on 104.5 said they gotta be careful with that to avoid getting sanctioned because they don't play in federal court.

But I think at a minimum, Lewis has a good cause against Ausberry and over the whole Les Miles fiasco. Assuming she collected as many receipts as she could and/or gets other folks (especially former staffers no longer w/ LSU) to testify on her behalf.

So the Legislature is sending a message in their own way that Segar and Ausberry should've been fired.

Do I even need to guess what party these legislators belong to?

How does party affiliation matter when BOTH should've already been terminated by LSU?

A 2 & 3 weeks "administrative leave" is a freaking joke and the LSU Administration should've canned their asses just like they should've canned the tennis coaches back when they were named in the shite last year.

Why are your people still dragging their feet even as the State Legislature and Senate Committee are both piling on everyday?

I could have sworn I read somewhere it was a federal lawsuit. The basis of much, if not all, of the lawsuit is pursuant to federal law, so state courts wouldn't have the jurisdiction to hear those issues.

He went on to say the paperwork said federal court. He was confused because the presser was in front of state court.

It would seem odd to file involving RICO in a state court but not my field of expertise.
