Louisiana Senate committee approves bill to create new crime of filing false liens on judges, court staff

States have in the past several years been grappling with the issue of litigants and others filing false liens on judges and court staff. Some states, like Arkansas in 2011, increased the penalties in existing law. Others, such as Louisiana, are considering creating a new crime that would specifically contend with instances where the false documents are filed against judges, court staff, and law enforcement.
The Louisiana bill, HB 616, was previously approved by the House. The video below is from the Senate Judiciary C committee’s hearing on the matter. It was approved on a voice vote by the committee.
