Amendments to La. summary-judgment procedure

Effective January 1, 2016, Act No. 422 of the latest Louisiana legislative session is going to make substantial changes to Louisiana’s summary-judgment procedure. If you practice civil litigation in Louisiana, you must familiarize yourself with these amendments. Appellate practitioners will be especially interested in new art. 966(H), which requires an appellate court to schedule a supervisory-writ application for briefing and oral argument before reversing the denial of summary judgment.
