Louisiana has 42 district courts, 46 city courts, and 3 parish courts. Judges for each serve 6-year terms.
The judicial district courts have original jurisdiction over most matters within their district. The city and parish courts have concurrent jurisdiction with the district court in their area, but only up to a certain amount (usually $5,000 to $20,000) in civil matters, and only over misdemeanors and ordinance violations in matters of criminal law
