La. CLE on Advanced Appellate Practice

Reminder of new briefing requirement in the 2nd Circuit

The current issue of the Louisiana Bar Journal includes a short but worthwhile article for anyone practicing in the Louisiana Second Circuit. Under new Local Rule 15, all appeal briefs must include the following certification:

I hereby verify that all attachments to this brief have previously been duly filed and/or accepted into evidence in the lower court, to the best of my knowledge, information and belief. I understand that failure to comply with this local rule may result in the refusal to consider said attachments. WILLFUL FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS LOCAL RULE MAY SUBJECT ME TO PUNISHMENT FOR CONTEMPT OF COURT

Failure to comply with this rule will result in rejection of your brief. See Local Rule 2-5Hal Odom, Jr., Focus on Local Practice: New Certification Required in 2nd Circuit, 65 La. B.J. 100 (Aug./Sept. 2017).

Of course, if you’re a regular reader of this blog, you already knew about this new rule. Still, Hal’s article is a good reminder.
