Rs 13:1905 Legal Representation By The Attorney General

§1905. Legal representation by the attorney general

A. It is hereby declared to be the public policy of this state that the state, through the attorney general, shall provide legal representation to a city court judge of this state in all claims, demands, or suits, if such claim, demand, or suit arises out of the discharge of his duties and is within the scope of his office and such claim, demand, or suit did not result from the intentional wrongful act or gross negligence of the city court judge.

B. Within five days after a city court judge is served with any summons, complaint, process, notice, demand, or pleading, he shall deliver the original or a copy thereof to the attorney general. If, after thorough investigation by the attorney general, it appears that the city court judge was not acting in the discharge of his duties and within the scope of his office at the time of the alleged act or omission, or that he was acting in an intentionally wrongful manner or was grossly negligent, the attorney general's office shall decline representation and the state shall not be responsible for providing any representation to the city court judge.

C. The decision of the attorney general not to defend a city court judge and any and all information obtained by him as a result of the investigations conducted pursuant to Subsection B shall be considered confidential and shall not be admissible as evidence in any legal proceeding and no reference thereto shall be made in any trial or hearing.

D. Nothing in this Section shall in any way impair, limit, or modify the rights and obligations of any insurer under any policy of insurance or impair the right of the individual to obtain private counsel in his own behalf.

E. This Section shall not be construed as creating a right of indemnification by a city court judge against the state for any claim, demand, suit, or judgment whatsoever.
