Like the Louisiana Supreme Court and other Louisiana courts of appeal, the Louisiana Fourth Circuit just issued an order extending its deadlines to June 16. Filings in that court that otherwise would have been due between March 12 and June 15, 2020 will be timely if filed by June 16. To download a copy of today’s Fourth Circuit order, follow this link.
It looks like June 16 is going to be a busy day in the Louisiana appellate world. Barring yet another extension of legal deadlines, that’s when a lot of stuff held up by the COVID-19 emergency is going to be due in the Louisiana Supreme Court and the First, Second, Third, and Fourth Circuits. In the Fifth Circuit, litigants will have until June 19.
