On which to me against the court order. Serb. The court yes you know the server as as explained to me yes it if it's a written. There's a certain dropped off at a certain places a certain time yet to comply with that. And it's it's if you do you know if that's not occurring and it's been done deliberately. That is definitely. Contempt of court. Okay. But that does not but the father can't which hole which now because of mad because he'd be in contempt to court to. Right well at the radio address that is is. You have the attorney write a letter informing the opposing party are opposing counsel that this occurring. To immediately stock comply with the arm court order or the consent judgment they don't do that then they would file motions. For contempt of court. For failure to comply with consent judgment as part of that relief it's you know had to incur attorneys' fees for on this motion we'd like to have that. And possibly some other sanction.

The state is she calm and days. You won't wood about when she's not there who stays in the house. The allies. If the owners have equal access to it so. And yet throw. Oh yeah and and and we find that happens quite a bit with co owners and you file petition for partition. And generally. You can asks court to point you know Astor courts appoint a real stage and to sell and then. And then if one of the parties has a problem with the price. You know the court and deal with that pretty quickly saying which unit. The other court gala that. I thought they would do it it would it would do it was court appointed. Appraisal.

The bottom of the hour but that Texas Kolb didn't call we can now and we can walk you through a little bit more all right we're going tune. CBS update and also we're going to local news so we should be backer about four minutes and halting illegal so stay tuned in fair or back Turks in Germany could you we can r.'s all things that'll be on till 1130 I cannot go or broadcast without talking briefly about Ella she's going to Citrus Bowl. In their campaign. And I think what crazy about going back to Citrus Bowl but I am a love. The Notre Dame deal. He murmured you murmur you know south Louisiana was very. Notre do you I guess when LSU played today in early seventies I was like. Huge has probably the biggest games have played a shot from national championship games in the 171. And in I think in 69% money and jobs do you remember now when your kid. Do you remember Notre Dame come in on the highlights that 10:30 in the morning. Paul horning in on Lindsay Nelson told this before ESPN news before all ceiling had wondered too. College games right and then you have on Sunday morning and she would have. The Notre Dame highlights. LSU our allies and to land hard on its right and that's our that's all you got to seek you never saw the games on TV. So sort of grew up. Cause I entertain tan so that they be pretty good match up here. And ego let's go to the phone line it's let's go to mark's got a question regarding life insurance hey Mike general things legal effects of turnover Nikko. More good. Of course you all used to be buried mark. I hold my short form. And then around. There before he left among all figured out paying more well. So on that. Up from now. The fact that under the you know it's critical part of the aisle and get sick and money Apollo. And then there are laws that after seven years of they hear argued that the turtle state. I don't know the duration but yes that's typically what happens. If they if there aren't able to locate you disposed to senator had did you check the State's website. No I did not what your bed by eight months ago they called LeapFrog current art but it's a bigger Apollo the air mark what. And well I'll is that partly for. And is there any cash value left in ya know about miles yes within the debate did he DJs counterclaim. I did I hear that. Out period of about seven years they argued journal report. Well good thing they did you have to go through bunch of hoops are the you know you were able get your money. And you know cash it out. Yeah I got it boom Marty goes up. Marty. It was make without optic copper. Hi there but it would if they didn't find you you would had to go look it up on the State's website or on a policy that you didn't know anything about. I want to deposit money anyway. It's do I don't also. Count our count your blessing that count your blessings in your money go crime a bag of money and has had at that. Hi my card thanks for that. I'll think my phone call dial himself back and goes the guys and grant got there there I mean think about it you know the they finally did find him in and they notify human league they pay eighty miles you know it lost a little money because the policy was still in effect in the of course they had had to pay a premium price to paid premium of course so who's gonna pay if they do well exactly and so if they just turned it over to the state. Then nobody is gonna pay the premium it's gonna laps and you know so worked up and he had to go find it through the state. I so it was so what you're trying to say is Mike would have found a quarter on the ground he used that old honest non dollar known as an adult right. A lot of people like there's. Get that phone call right back to the coming year. They look arrogant angry at 41. Archer doctor are Willis will tell you let's go to break that exits are ever to curry we can lawyers often legal we'll be right back here is retirement day were back Texans area over Nico you weaken lawyers all things legal you know on the DL I'm mama get back on hellish future Dane. Back in 71 this is from Ramallah O'Neal's. When LSU played him I think he played your thighs then I think listen seven and it lost three nothing nickname in next year and 71. They beat Notre Dame 28 T eight which was probably used. Sop from national champ ship one of the biggest wins in history relish too it was on Saturday night Tiger Stadium solve a mythical night. But the interesting part laws. You know south Louisiana Tech hat heavily Catholic you know we all week you know sort. And one of the issues when LSU played Notre Dame early seventies was they were parishioners there were concerned. That the internal set the eternal salvation may be. Impaired. If they pulled against and a today. And so while some in the priest's. Priest had to say it's okay. To pull for against Notre Dame right one they played relishing the idea so. That has to sort of cute if you watch Notre Dame player and so and on Saturdays echo for church. And now but you know what I don't think they can have masks. Door and attending game could he got touchdown Jesus watching the game in the but he can be more whack was seen from the stated it's a beautiful I mean it's a beautiful statues though they touch on jesus'. This right there are so no I don't think it is. As prize either possibly for national championship game they could be a special dispensation that. That's that's way way above my com. Pay grade I doubt that that was it I remember that it was that's why it was such a big robbery back in the seventies because. Days they had they did have an emotional attachment people of south Louisiana who Notre Dame was that was the Catholic school right on TV every weekend. On the highlights and a lot of people you know the only sought three teams soil she to nine Notre Dame on the loose we cannot. My friend buff Myers. Was the first person to get cable television. And ESPN. And I went over there and unlike. I can't believe they got a 24 hour sports they talk with a no way this is what we're gonna make it way I'm gonna make 24 hours a day they must be bigger. Much repeat things over and over and over again this station and and load OK here and as it is here we are there's ten of them right well actually in early seventy's they would only have. One or two games the weekend one TV might have an actual game in May be regional game I was ABC. That was saints game saints game four blacked out because they've hardly sold out there were blacked out there were blacked out while there at Tulane stadium the most Martin. Because they had a black out rules I even even if there was a cell Pakistan far remember correctly I don't know but if there was a sellout big they would be on so that that I'm not in the beginning so maybe not Meryl got to begin early on that one allow gays you know being built. The purpose of the blackout was a certain hip people go the other two people go to regain its. Now now all we used to do. And our remit this is you can catch the series games on channel two in that owners and saw a member going my grandparents' house at times and get now. Get that TV antenna trying to catch that crucial I look at him pull them up you aluminum foil. NN and catching the snowy version of the saints came at Tulane stating from the from the Baton Rouge feet yeah yeah so but a Q usually when LSU played there's only three games there worn TV LSU maybe all burned. LSU Alabama. And possibly. LSU Ole miss but that was hit. It is so if you did good game you didn't see it now you have to listen to. John Ferguson Walter Hill. On a radio but that you know there was that settlement and an impact the Ellis unit to gain gain that was three nothing was not on TV but the one entire stadium on an unarmed 1971 when Andy Hamilton core two touchdown passes. Is it Byrd Charles was quarterback. That was on ABC national champion I was a nationally televised game which was really a big deal so it's okay now do you think Darius price. The gonna come back there's some rumblings. That he make combat. Well you know it I think it's a type of situation where. If he comes back. Our offensive line will be improved. They're gonna be a little older. They're going to be improved new quarterback inexperienced quarterback dumb and so. He had his draft stock MW officially he's amid he's in mid first round pick this year is that what they're they're gonna do they say did you ever see I thought it was me he duplicate of a second or third now that in the cities and he's a first round that I wouldn't combat. That's what I'm saying I think I come from a twenty year old kid. All my life wanted to play in the NFL and somebody's gonna play mean pay me millions of dollars to do it on a I'm gonna go get what Kevin Faulk came back if you remember. Alan Faneca and at the yeah denying marriage is that while yes. Well I wasn't his situation. He was I think it wasn't a financial situation with him. Well let me what was as far as patent I mean raw bars pains me in his living expenses and need to take care of family. But. Kevin Faulk do you remember the year that Kevin Faulk and Allentown or coming out the same there were juniors and and in Saudi expected that Alan Faneca with its today in Kevin awkwardly. It happened the reverse happened. Data collects his junior year and Kevin talks they proceed news and had a wonderful seeing year on the team didn't do so well but he had a great seniors so. Maybe that is a possibility I'm not. I don't know. But it would be nice he narrowly now. Crisis sought in the situation like the blind side he's got a couple from mom a famine from Catholic car this thought of taken command and you know if they did do something like that they can take got a big insurance policy he got hurt so they become financially and possibly ago but we got Kerry and a lot about to Ellis unit to dating game from 1971. They carry on a halting trio and sometimes sports. Out this week you got out. Erica nineteen. Right. In all. But two straight. All I wanna say listen. The word Al hunt if you don't know who is now. Well. That's you are. Now get it. All. Open. Yeah you saw that double move he did double move on. Dead dead OK. I was ten years old guys remember who's out who's out its allotment for Notre Dame on that game. There you go. You got. Probably three times. Is that directed to. The depths that that I got it. Why are you that would that game was sought to head a mythological. Since I mean this was like probably the most exciting game Tiger Stadium since the Billy cannon did it. They're in about a bank could not at. All in speaking to friends and defense but then. Debate. Its popular. Need to. Use that I'm able to being. Don't vote. They they wilted that's right they will it.
