Louisiana Small Claims Courts

Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors.

In Louisiana, the City Court hears small claims actions, as set out in R.S. 13.5201. Some eviction cases are heard in small claims court, if the rent at issue is sufficiently small. Amounts at issue are limited to $3,000 ($2,000 for movable property).
