Link to Librarian defamation case to be heard this week in Livingston Parish

The suit names Lafayette-based conservative activist Michael Lunsford and his organization Citizens for a New Louisiana, alongside another Facebook bomb thrower from Livingston Parish. The pair targeted a Livingston librarian with posts portraying her as a “pedophile.”

“Defendant Lunsford and Defendant CFANL have portrayed, and continue to portray, Amanda Jones as a criminal and a pedophile — one who supports dissemination of ‘pornographic materials’ to elementary school children,” the lawsuit alleges.
