Like Enright, the appeals court panel did not take up the substance of Shepherd’s argument against the law, though he has another case that is expected to be appealed to the state Supreme Court.
Shepherd won that case at the state level when Baton Rouge Judge Wilson Fields ruled on Tuesday that the law barring felons from running was unconstitutional. The state has said it will appeal that ruling directly to the state Supreme Court.
