NEW ORLEANS – A St. Tammany property holding company is suing its New Orleans neighbor over a property line dispute.

Cerniglia Place, LLC flied suit against Deborah Altazan Johnson in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court.

The plaintiff is seeking a court order for the removal of the fence and compensation for the cost of the suit.

Cerniglia Place, LLC is represented by William M. Magee of Covington-based Magee, Zeringue & Richardson.

The case has been assigned to Division N Judge Ethel S. Julien.
