Learn More About Metairie, LA

Modern day Metairie, LA is not technically a city – the area is governed as part of Jefferson Parish, as it has no mayor or local government of its own. Metairie was the first suburb of the city of New Orleans, located on the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain, and did briefly incorporate as a city in 1927 to allow the area to receive gas service before it was again unincorporated. Approximately 160,000 people reside in Metairie. Like the city of New Orleans, Metairie is also located below sea level and participates in large annual Mardi Gras celebrations.

Metairie lawyers recently brought a class-action lawsuit against Jefferson Parish. The plaintiffs argue that a Parish ordinance ordering red light cameras to catch and issue tickets to those running red lights in Metairie is unconstitutional as the tickets are classified as a civil offense. The lawsuit claims that such automated enforcement programs should be classified as a misdemeanor offense in order to allow citizens to receive due process.
