Some questions have easy answers, such as this one:
Q. Can I preserve an issue for review by the Louisiana Supreme Court by reserving my right to do so in a footnote in my writ application?
A. No. You need to address the issue in your assignments of error and your argument. Relegating it to a footnote won’t do. See Bonnette v. Conoco, Inc., 2001-2767, p. 10 (La. 1/28/03), 837 So. 1219, 1227.
