NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

One race for the state Senate has prompted a lawsuit.

Sen. Conrad Appel is suing opponent John LaBruzzo over LaBruzzo's "One Bad Apple" campaign mailer.

The mailer accuses Appel of being a "bad apple." It suggests he bought stocks in a Common Core company that received state contracts, causing his shares to double in value. Appel says that's not true.

According to our partners at NOLA.com|The Times-Picayune, a hearing concerning the lawsuit is scheduled for Tuesday.
