Mayor’s defamation suit is dismissed

St. Martinville – Mayor Thomas Nelson’s lawsuit against Espinola Quinn has been dismissed by a state judge.

The suit resulted from a Washington Post article in which Quinn alleged Thomas had taken racially-biased actions to cancel the annual Newcomers Club Mardi Gras parade.

Quinn is quoted in the article as saying of the mayor, “He promised the whites he was going to shut the n...rparade down.”
