Moore v. Tangipahoa Parish School Board
Opinion Date: December 21, 2018
Judge: Stephen Andrew Higginson
Areas of Law: Legal Ethics
In this school desegregation case, at issue was the reimbursement of expenses for a court-appointed oversight official. After the district court ordered an increase in the official’s compensation, the school board appealed and the official prevailed. The Fifth Circuit affirmed the district court's reimbursement of the official's appellate expenses, as well as the timing and quantity of the reimbursement, holding that the district court did not abuse its discretion.
