Attorney General Opinions

#12-0011 - Monday, March 12, 2012

La. R.S. 13:4521(A)(1) exempts Franklin Parish Hospital Service District No. 1, a political subdivision of the state, from paying advance court costs to file collection lawsuits and the Winnsboro City Court cannot require the court costs be paid. It is further the opinion of this office that Franklin Parish Hospital Service District No. 1 may not, through a cooperative endeavor agreement or otherwise, voluntarily pay such costs without violating La. Const. art. VII, Sec. 14.
