Last Friday, March 20, I posted about the Louisiana Supreme Court’s order extending deadlines in its own cases. Today I caught up to a second order by the Louisiana Supreme Court on March 20. This order continues trials in all other Louisiana courts and partially supersedes the Court’s March 16 order. The March 20 order continues all civil and criminal jury trials set to begin between March 20 and April 13, “to be reset by local order no earlier than April 14, 2020.” The order continues all other civil trials set to begin during the same period, except without the April 14 deadline for resetting them. Several time-sensitive categories of civil cases are exempted from the continuance.
