194. The only actions that may be inscribed for judgment before the clerk are those for a sum of money which are founded on:
(1) an authentic deed or private writing;
(2) a verbal agreement to pay a specific sum of money;
(3) a detailed account pertaining to the sale price of a movable that has been delivered or the price of a contract for services that have been provided.
The inscription must be accompanied by an affidavit attesting that the amount claimed is owing by the defendant to the plaintiff.
The clerk renders judgment upon inspection of the affidavit and of the document upon which the action is based. The clerk may also validate any seizure before judgment made in the proceeding.
