Recount results released Tuesday showed the vote to extend tolls on the Crescent City Connection passed by 36 votes rather than the 18 shown after the polls closed.

It was a partial recount of paper ballots.

The group Stop The Tolls isn’t finished with the issue.

It has filed a lawsuit and could be in court next month.
