Peralta lawsuit accuses attorney general of using perjured testimony

BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

St. Bernard Parish President Dave Peralta filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the Louisiana attorney general.

The federal civil suit accuses AG Buddy Caldwell and several of his assistants of using perjured testimony to convince a grand jury to indict Peralta on a sexual battery charge in 2014.

That charge, filed by Peralta's ex-wife, has since been dismissed.

Caldwell's spokesman calls the filing baseless and meritless.
