§2614. Territorial jurisdiction; St. Charles Parish justice of the peace courts

A. Effective upon the election of justices of the peace and constables at the election provided for in R.S. 13:2582(F) and 2583(E), the territorial limits of the justice of the peace courts in St. Charles Parish shall be the same as the seven parish council districts within the parish for the purpose of election and the persons elected to the offices of justice of the peace and constable for those courts at the 1997 special election shall be elected from those districts. If the parish council district lines are changed thereafter, the territorial jurisdiction of the justice of the peace courts shall also be changed for the purpose of election to coincide with the new parish council district lines effective at the beginning of the next regular term of office for justices of the peace and constables. However, in the event that the number of parish council districts increases or decreases from seven parish council districts, the territorial jurisdiction of the justice of the peace courts shall not be changed but shall remain the same for the purpose of election. Each of the justices of the peace courts shall have jurisdiction and venue throughout the parish.

B. The persons elected to the offices of justice of the peace and constable for such justice of the peace courts shall be elected from the districts provided in this Section and shall be elected according to R.S. 13:2582(F) and 2583(E).

Acts 1997, No. 1322, §1, eff. July 15, 1997.
