Dear Customer,Thank you for using our forum. My name is ***** ***** I hope to assist you today.
A party has 15 days from the entry of (or mailing of) judgment from the Justice of the Peace to file a motion for trial de novo. See: http://law.justia.com/codes/louisiana/2009/ccp/ccp4925.html
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.
