TITLE 13 - Courts and Judicial Procedure
RS 13:3889 - Writ execution; prohibited agreements
§3889. Writ execution; prohibited agreements
A. The legislature finds that inequities and injustices are resulting due to the refusal of sheriffs to seize certain immovable property despite issuance of a writ of fieri facias or seizure and sale directing the sheriff to seize the property, without the advance grant of blanket indemnification and notwithstanding the final payment of fees.
B. The legislature declares null and void and against the public policy of this state, any provision or requirement of any agreement which purports to provide for the defense, indemnification or other relief of liability on behalf of any sheriff directed to seize property under any writs of fieri facias, seizure and sale, or other writ, issued by a court of competent jurisdiction or venue, commanding and directing that the property be seized.
