FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE

NEWS RELEASE # 052

FROM: CLERK OF THE SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA

 

On the 28th day of July, 2000 , the following action was taken by the Supreme Court of Louisiana in the case(s) listed below:

WRIT APPLICATION(S) GRANTED WITH ORDER:

2000-CC- 2157 PATSY RAMBO & SALVIN RAMBO v. WILLIS-KNIGHTON BOSSIER HEALTH CENTER, TRADENAME WILLIS KNIGHTEN MEDICAL CENTER (Parish of Bossier)

VICTORY, J., not on panel.

CALOGERO, C.J., concurs.

LEMMON, J., concurs. The purpose of Rule 4-3 is to ensure timely filing of supervisory writs. In light of its purpose, Rule 4-3 should be interpreted under La. Code Civ. Proc. art. 5051 (procedural rules "are to be construed liberally, and with due regard for the fact that rules of procedure implement the substantive law and are not an end in themselves") to permit the filing of an application for writs directly in the Court of Appeal within thirty days of the date of the ruling at issue. Unless the thirty-day limitation interferes with the trial date or other orderly proceeding or unless the party desires a return date beyond the thirty-day limitation, the party need not obtain a return date, which involves an expenditure of lawyer and judge time and client funds.
