La. 3rd Circuit’s response to the COVID-19 emergency

The Louisiana Third Circuit has announced two orders related to the COVID-19 emergency, both signed yesterday by the chief judge. The orders do a number of things:

  • All oral arguments “currently scheduled to take place through April 30, 2020 and May 31, 2020 are to have their matters submitted on briefs ....”
  • All filings must be made by fax or email. (For how to do that, see Internal Rule 12.)
  • Like the other courts of appeal, the Third Circuit has decreed a legal holiday through April 13, 2020, and set a deadline of April 20 to file anything that would otherwise be due during the legal holiday.
  • Finally, like the other courts of appeal, the Third Circuit has restricted physical access to the courthouse.
