Both sides arrived in court Wednesday. But lawyers for the two elected officials disagreed on what should be handled in the hearing.
Judge Todd Hernandez spent nearly two hours in a closed-door meeting with the lawyers, trying to work out scheduling details. When they emerged, the new hearing date was set.
Republican Attorney General Jeff Landry says the Democratic governor's anti-discrimination executive order violates the state constitution. Landry's asking for a preliminary injunction prohibiting Edwards from enforcing the order.
Edwards accuses Landry of repeatedly exceeding his authority and is asking Hernandez to define the attorney general's role in office.
