B.(1) A parish court shall have jurisdiction, concurrent with the district court, over suits by owners and landlords for the possession of leased premises within its territorial jurisdiction, as follows:

(a) When the amount of the rental does not exceed the jurisdictional amounts provided in Code of Civil Procedure Article 4844(A).

The civil jurisdiction of a parish court is concurrent with the district court in cases or proceedings instituted by the state, a parish, a municipality, or other political subdivision of the state for injunctive relief or other civil relief for the cessation or abatement of any acts or practices committed within the parish court's territorial jurisdiction which may violate any parish or municipal ordinance or any state law; in such case, the court shall have jurisdiction irrespective of the amount in dispute or the value of the property involved.
