New Law Affects Louisiana Construction Contracts in 2011


Construction contracts executed after Jan 1, 2011 can't indemnify a party from their own negligence or choose out-of-state law to apply to the contract. These new requirements are discussed in this post.

A new law spawned by the 2010 Louisiana legislative session will effect construction contracts in the state, but has received relatively little attention. I speak of Senate Bill 625 (Act 492), which created La. R.S. 9:2780.1 (read the Act and new law here), and provides that certain contract provisions within a construction contract are invalid as a matter of law.
