NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Louisiana Supreme Court has put a hold on a hearing about New Orleans’ mayor-elect while considing whether the judge should step aside.

State Attorney General Jeff Landry has subpoenaed Mayor-elect LaToya Cantrell’s personal bank records.

She won 60 percent of the vote to succeed term-limited Mayor Mitch Landrieu. Her runoff opponent accused her of misusing a city credit card, an allegation Cantrell denies.

Cantrell asked the Criminal District Court to throw out the subpoena. Judge Laurie White scheduled a hearing next week.

The New Orleans Advocate and Nola.com | The Times-Picayune report that the Supreme Court issued a stay Thursday.

Landry says every Orleans Parish judge should step aside from the question, because the mayor has a hand in the court’s budget and because Cantrell’s father-in-law is a magistrate judge.
