LA Supreme Court Rule Names LBF as Permissible Recipient of Cy Pres Funds
On September 27, 2012, the Supreme Court adopted Rule XLIII, which names the Louisiana Bar Foundation as a permissible recipient of Cy Pres
funds. The LBF is the only organization specifically identified in the rule.
Because of the tremendous need for civil legal services for low income people in Louisiana, Cy Pres
awards can go a long way toward meeting the need for legal services. The LBF thanks the Supreme Court for their continued commitment to ensure access to equal and fair representation of the indigent.
