§5089. Seizure of books and papers
In any proceeding brought under R.S. 13:5081 through 13:5088, the judge, if it be shown upon a summary trial by rule that there is grave danger that the defendant will conceal or destroy its books and records, may issue without exacting bond, an order to the sheriff directing him to seize and deliver into the custody of the court all such books and papers. However, all such books and papers shall remain in the exclusive custody of the court and shall be available to the defendant for the preparation of its defense and the conduct of its business.
