|Vidalia wins again in Comfort Suites' suit|
The City of Vidalia has won its third court victory in a row in its legal battle with Comfort Suites.
The Louisiana State Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Vidalia Riverfront Development District on Tuesday in what became a long-running court battle initiated by Comfort Suites' owner Virgil F. Jackson over a six percent occupancy sales tax.
The Third Circuit Court of Appeal ruled May 7 in favor of the town's Riverfront Development District. That decision was in response to an appeal filed by Jackson over Judge Kathy Johnson's ruling on Oct. 1, 2007, in Seventh Judicial District Court that the occupancy tax was constitutional.
"We're happy with the decision and just want to move forward with it and go from there," said Vidalia Mayor Hyram Copeland.
Jackson filed a lawsuit in August of 2007 challenging the tax on riverfront businesses, which his attorneys said in court documents amounted to taxation without representation.
Representing hotel owner Jackson and VFJ Jackson Enterprises were attorneys Joseph R. Ward Jr. of Covington and Brent S. Gore of Ferriday.
Representing the Town of Vidalia, Vidalia Riverfront Development District and the Vidalia Riverfront Authority were Baton Rouge attorneys Charlie Patin Jr. and Max Kees, and Vidalia city attorney Jack McLemore.
