By: ArchCity Defenders

This website provides information about the Lampkin v. City of Jennings settlement agreement.

If you paid a Warrant Fee related to the municipal court of the City of Jennings from December 8, 2009 to August 29, 2016 you are entitled to a partial refund of the fees you paid, if you file a claim for a refund. The City of Jennings will pay a partial refund of the Fee or Fees paid not to exceed 75% of the total fee paid by a Class Member, but only if the Class Member timely files a claim for refund with the Claims Administrator. The exact amount of the refund will depend upon the number of Class Members making claims. This settlement resolves the Lawsuit concerning whether Warrant Fees charged by the City of Jennings municipal court were legal. The two sides disagree about whether the Warrant Fee was proper, and if it was improper, how much of the Warrant Fee should be refunded. The Defendant City of Jennings has denied liability for the claims in the Lawsuit. The parties have agreed to resolve this case by a settlement.
