IBERIA PARISH, La. (KLFY) — Just days after her retirement from a district judge’s seat, Lori Landry has qualified to run against 16th Judicial District Attorney Bo Duhé.

Both Lori and Duhé  have had a contentious relationship in recent years.

In December 2019, roughly a dozen witnesses testified in proceedings to recuse the district judge from more than 300 cases. The motion for recusal was filed by Duhé in claims that she was “biased, unfair and hostile toward his prosecutors and others.”

The district attorney later dismissed the recusal motions, saying his office and the judge “will resolve their issues together, as a team.”

Now, they’ll square off for the 16th JDC seat.
