PORT ALLEN, La. (AP) - The trial date in the wrongful termination lawsuit Port Allen Chief Financial Officer Audrey McCain filed against former Mayor Demetric Slaughter has been moved to July 1.

Arguments in the case were supposed to be heard before District Judge Alvin Batiste on March 3.

According to a court order filed Tuesday, the trial was reset so a new attorney, J. Scott Thomas, had time to review the case and adequately prepare to defend Slaughter in her official capacity while she was the city’s mayor. The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1logKxr ) Slaughter’s other attorney, Ronald Johnson, will represent on legal issues not dealing with her public life.

McCain sued Slaughter in February 2013 after Slaughter tried to fire her.
