LA Rev Stat § 42:193 What's This?

§193. Suits to test sufficiency of surety; summary trial; appeal

The governor is authorized to direct the institution of suits by the Attorney General or district attorney to test the sufficiency and solvency of the sureties on the bond of any public officer, even after approval of the bond by those whose duty it is to pass upon it.

The suits provided for in this Section may be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction; they shall be tried summarily and in chambers, after ten days notice; and no suspensive appeal shall be allowed from a judgment which declares the bond insufficient or the sureties thereon insolvent unless the officer furnishes a new bond, approved by the proper officers and by the judge who rendered the original judgment.
