TITLE 13 - Courts and Judicial Procedure
RS 13:4208 - Same; judgment and appeal when court not in session
§4208. Same; judgment and appeal when court not in session
When the thirty days herein provided in R.S. 13:4207 expires at a time when the judge is not holding court in the parish wherein the case was tried and submitted, or while the judge is on vacation, the judge shall forward his decree to the clerk of the court, who shall enter the decree upon the minutes of the court, and the decree shall have the same effect as if rendered in open court. In all such cases which are appealable, the judges, at the time of rendering their judgments, shall grant an order of appeal, and fix the appeal bonds when not fixed by law. Either party to any such suit, upon filing the required bond, may take an appeal, which shall have the same legal effect as if granted in open court. The clerk of court as aforesaid, shall file same and issue notices of the decree to all the parties to the suit, or to their attorneys of record, unless the notice has been waived by the parties, or by their attorneys of record; and the sheriff shall serve the notices. The time granted parties under existing laws to take appeals, in cases where decrees are rendered under this section, shall begin to run from the time of the service upon the parties or their attorneys, unless the notice has been waived; and if the notice has been waived, the delay for appeals shall begin to run from the date of the clerk's receipt of the decree.
