THIBODAUX, Louisiana — The state Supreme Court said it won't review Lafourche Parish President Charlotte Randolph's successful ethics case appeal.

The Daily Comet reports ( ) the court unanimously denied the state ethics board's Sept. 19 request for a review last week.

In August, the 1st Circuit Court of Appeal overturned a ruling by the state Ethics Adjudicatory Board that Randolph violated state ethics laws in 2010 when she leased her Grand Isle camp for $50,000 to BP cleanup crews following the Deepwater Horizon spill.

The ethics board ruled she was in violation of Louisiana law because the parish was in a contract with BP at the time of the rental.

Randolph argued that after learning of an ethics board ruling in an unrelated case, she terminated the rental agreement with BP.
