no telling, with all the road work, demolitions, etc. I'm sure SBPG has been
sued often these last few years----SJK

Guess that's one for Ginger and the Provident shysters.

Parishes are generally exempt from paying court costs according to
La. R.S.
However, La. R.S. 13:5112 creates an exception to this general rule
providing that in a
law suit against the parish, when a judgment has been rendered
against the
parish, the
trial or appellate court in its discretion may order the parish to
pay the
successful party's
court costs. This exemption mandates the judgment to give a specific
amount the
parish is to pay. (Day)
Op to Honorable Craig P. Taffaro, Jr., St. Bernard Parish President,
Chalmette, LA
Date Released: February 22, 2011
