divorce proceedings in 2011, our client filed a lawsuit against her then-husband for restitution
of 268 items of her separate property and other missing items. The case
was tried by Attorney Robert C. Lowe and Attorney Jeffrey M. Hoffman for
over four days in St. Tammany Parish. In the end, the trial judge awarded
our client the immediate return of all of her property. In addition, the
judge ordered the ex-husband to pay nearly $104,000 to compensate her
for property which was missing upon a walk-through inspection.
However, the ex-husband would not let this decision come to pass. Through
numerous writ applications and even after an appeal affirmed by the First
Circuit Court of Appeal, his last ditch efforts to overturn the trial
court’s judgment took the case all the way up to the Louisiana Supreme Court.
In the end, the Louisiana Supreme Court ruled in favor of our client, allowing
her to reclaim her valuable and sentimental property and awarding the
$104,000 for her missing furniture.
