Thibodeaux v. Comeaux

Louisiana Third Circuit Court of Appeal opinion regarding the impropriety of raising new arguments in the context of reply breifs


This opinion stands for the principle that new arguments cannot be raised in the context of a reply memorandum. The Louisiana Third Circuit Court of Appeal cites the impropriety of those very actions taken by the appellee and reversed the trial court's incorrect grant of summary judgment on the basis of an argument raised in its reply memorandum.
