Louisiana law vs. Louisiana Civil Code[edit]

I got redirected here from "Louisiana Civil Code" but I'm not sure why. The Louisiana Civil Code has a history and importance that is separate and distinct from the very general subject of "Louisiana law." I just don't understand the logic of the Wikipedians... --Economy1 12:35, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

way to repeditive[edit]

the same phrase is used three times. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.228.115.215 (talk) 07:30, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Appears that at least one very distinguished scholar thinks that the Louisiana code was indeed based on the Napoleonic code, contrary to assertion made in the present Wikipedia entry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.200.236.70 (talk) 04:19, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Well, no, not really. The Yiannopoulos article, particularly paragraphs 22 through 25, describes a scholarly dispute about whether the Louisiana Civil Code of 1808 was mostly French or mostly Spanish. Yiannopoulos does not take one side or the other. The current wording of this article is consistent with the facts presented in paragraph 22 of this article. --Lockley (talk) 07:27, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
