Transparency in Private Attorney Contracts
This bill codifies the Louisiana Supreme Court decision in Meredith
This bill codifies the Louisiana Supreme Court decision in Meredith v. Ieyoub. It says the state cannot compensate attorneys on a contingency fee basis, absent express statutory authority. The legislation, which is prospective only, prohibits the attorney general, state agencies and boards and commissions from entering into contingency fee contracts without express statutory authority. It also provides a transparent process for the use of outside counsel contracts by the state.
