Trial court cannot rescind an order of appeal
For La. appellate briefs, does the cover count against the page limit?

New La. 2nd Circuit local rule for appellee’s brief

Today the Louisiana Second Circuit promulgated Local Rule 12, governing the content of the appellee’s brief. You can view the newly adopted rule on the court’s web site, on the local-rules page, and you can download a copy of the order promulgating the new rule by clicking here.

Local Rule 12 departs slightly from Uniform Rule 2-12.5 by adding three items to the list of things that the appellee’s brief need not include unless the appellee is dissatisfied with the appellant’s statement:

  • the assignment of alleged errors (Unif. R. 2-12.4, subsection A(5));
  • the statement of the objection or proffer (Unif. R. 2-12.4, subsection A(9)(b)); and
  • a copy of the judgment, order, or ruling complained of, and any reasons for judgment (Unif. R. 2-12.4, subsection B(1)).
