La. 2nd Circuit extends deadlines to June 12

Like the other Louisiana courts of appeal, the Louisiana Second Circuit has extended its deadlines to implement Governor Edwards’s executive order 59 JBE 2020 (May 14, 2020)., which extended the suspension of legal deadlines until June 5, 2020. Under the Second Circuit’s order, filings that would have been due during the suspension period will be deemed timely if filed by June 12, 2020 for non-expedited matters, or by June 8, 2020 for expedited matters.

The order also states that the Second Circuit’s next oral argument will be scheduled for June 22 and 23, 2020, either in person or by video conference, with additional oral arguments to be scheduled for July 20 and 21, 2020.

At the time I wrote this blog post, the Second Circuit had not yet uploaded the order to its web site. But not to worry; you can download a copy by following this link.
