§1-1604.  Court-ordered inspection

A.  If a corporation does not within a reasonable time allow a shareholder who complies with the applicable provisions of R.S. 12:1-1602 to inspect and copy any records required by that Section to be available for inspection, the district court of the parish where the corporation's principal office or, if none in this state, its registered office is located may by summary proceeding order inspection and copying of the records demanded.  If the court determines that the shareholder was entitled to inspect and copy the demanded records under R.S. 12:1-1602(A), then the court shall order the corporation to provide copies of the demanded records at the corporation's expense.

B.  [Reserved.]

C.  If the court orders inspection and copying of the records demanded, it shall also order the corporation to pay the shareholder's expenses incurred to obtain the order unless the corporation proves that it refused inspection in good faith because it had a reasonable basis for doubt about the right of the shareholder to inspect the records demanded.

D.  If the court orders inspection and copying of the records demanded, it may impose reasonable restrictions on the use or distribution of the records by the demanding shareholder.
