Universal Citation: LA Civ Code 2057 (2018)

Art. 2057. Contract interpreted in favor of obligor

In case of doubt that cannot be otherwise resolved, a contract must be interpreted against the obligee and in favor of the obligor of a particular obligation.

Yet, if the doubt arises from lack of a necessary explanation that one party should have given, or from negligence or fault of one party, the contract must be interpreted in a manner favorable to the other party whether obligee or obligor.

Acts 1984, No. 331, §1, eff. Jan. 1, 1985.
