Summary

    Act 1051 (2010 Regular Session) amends Article V, Section 8(B).

    Present Constitution provides that a majority of the judges of the court of appeal sitting in a case must concur to render judgment. In civil matters only, when a judgment of a district court is to be modified or reversed and one judge dissents, the case is required to be reargued before a panel of at least five judges prior to rendition of judgment and a majority must concur to render judgment.

    Proposed Constitutional Amendment retains present law and provides that in civil matters only, when a judgment of a district court or an administrative agency determination in a workers' compensation claim is to be modified or reversed and one judge dissents, the case is required to be reargued before a panel of at least five judges prior to rendition of judgment and a majority shall concur to render judgment.
