Petition #20883117


Antoine Lacour, a free man of color, charges that he was in the "quiet & peacable possession" of a tract of land situated partly in the parish of Iberville and partly in the parish of West Baton Rouge, when one Surville Trahan entered his property, earlier in the current year, and cut down and destroyed some valuable trees, causing damages in the amount of $100. Lacour claims that he has reason to believe that Trahan will continue to trespass on his land and cut down his timber. He therefore asks the court to cite Trahan to appear before the court, to condemn him to pay the sum of $100 in damages, and to "perpetually" enjoin him from committing waste and trespass on his land.

Result: Dismissed.
