Customer Question

The Justice of the Peace mailed a judgment against me in my case in St. Tammany Louisiana and the other party filed for a "review de novo" 50 days after the Justice mailed the judgment. I paid the judgment 10 days later with interest but the other guy did not cash the check. How long a time period can the other side appeal.

However, you must file an opposition to the other party's motion - this can be as simple as citing the above code section and stating that the motion is untimely, but you must file an opposition.
