RE: Ethics Board Docket No. 2009-906
Dear Mr. O’Malley:
The Louisiana Board of Ethics, at its October 27, 2009 meeting, considered your advisory opinion request regarding your proposed contract with Benetech, LLC violating the non competition clause in your former contract with James Lee Witt.
As the Board has only the authority and power to enforce the provisions of the Code of Governmental Ethics, and as the matters about which you have requested do not present any issues under the Louisiana Code of Governmental Ethics. The Board had declined to render an advisory opinion in this matter.
The Board issues no opinion as to laws other than the Code of Governmental Ethics. If you have any questions, please contact me at (800) 842-6630 or (225) 219-5600.
LOUISIANA BOARD OF ETHICS
For the Board
