The statute of limitations in LA is 10 years for written contracts, but it is only 3 years for "open-ended accounts," which are typically credit cards. I'm not sure how LA treats a payday loan, but since it's not "open-ended," but, rather, a specified amount, I'd have to say the SOL is 10 years from the date of LAST payment or agreement to pay.
