Hon. John Tarlton Olivier - Clerk of Court

400 Royal Street, Suite 4200

New Orleans, LA 70130-8102

(504) 310-2300

The Louisiana Supreme Court is the court of last resort in Louisiana. Jurisdiction of the Court is Original, Appellate and Supervisory. Appellate jurisdiction extends primarily to cases in which a statute has been declared unconstitutional by a lower court or where a person has been convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death. The Court has original jurisdiction over attorney and judicial discipline; however, there are administrative procedures in place for the preparation of the record and recommendations to the Court for action. The majority of filings in this Court are requests for the Court to exercise its supervisory jurisdiction by reviewing actions of lower courts. The Court sits en banc.
