Status of La. 3rd Circuit during COVID-19 emergency

Today the Louisiana Third Circuit issued a notice about its current operations during the COVID-19 emergency. To download a copy of the notice, follow this link. Here are some highlights:

  • Although the Third Circuit courthouse is closed, the Third Circuit is continuing to conduct business, with most of its personnel working remotely.
  • During the emergency, the Third Circuit is accepting filings by email, fax, and U.S. Mail.
  • Unlike the other Louisiana appellate courts, the Third Circuit is continuing to accept in-person filings, but subject to the court’s March 18 notice restricting access to the courthouse.
  • Appeal records remain available, both on paper and electronically. Today’s notice provides details on that.
