Supreme Court of Louisiana.
DIXON, Chief Justice.*
We granted writs in this case to determine whether the defendant acted in such a manner that the doctrine of "contra non valentem" would apply to prevent the accrual of the prescriptive period of R.S. 9:5628. An exception of prescription was sustained in the trial court, and the court of appeal affirmed. Gover v. Bridges, 486 So.2d 1117 (La.App.2d Cir.1986).
