The deal is in limbo for at least one week.
Last week Caddo Commissioners voted eleven to one to purchase the old GM plant with $7.5 million dollars from the reserve and oil and gas fund.
The one no vote came from Commissioner Stephanie Lynch and turned into a lawsuit. She says the public's money should be protected in case the deal with Elio goes sour.
A hearing is scheduled in Caddo Parish court next Tuesday at 2pm.
"I'm going to continue my fight to make sure we get those 1,500 jobs and that the deal goes appropriately for our $7.5 million investment," Lynch said.
