Pierre Seuzeneau cites the 1805 Charter in his lawsuit against Barthelemy Lafon for non-payment of an amount due for laying the sidewalk (banquette) in front of Lafonís property on St. Peter Street. County Court Judge James Workman ruled in favor of Seuzeneau and ordered Lafon to pay $75 plus court costs. Seuzeneauís petition is shown below and below it is his bill for the work.
