2006 Press Releases

 JANUARY 20, 2006

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Chief Justice Pascal F. Calogero, Jr. announced today that the Conference of Chief Justices 2007 Mid-Year Meeting will be held in New Orleans. The CCJ's decision to hold its winter meeting in New Orleans in 2007 was the result of a unanimous vote of the membership on January 18th during the 2006 Mid-Year Meeting held at Amelia Island, Florida. New Orleans was originally slotted to host the 2006 Conference of Chief Justices Mid-Year meeting, but Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath made it necessary to find an alternative location for the meeting.


"It is a great vote of confidence for the City of New Orleans and our State that the Conference of Chief Justices has elected to entrust our Court to host its annual mid-year meeting. I wish to express my thanks to CCJ President Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard of Indiana for his enthusiastic support of New Orleans' selection as host city for next year's meeting. It has been over eleven years since we last hosted the mid-winter meeting, and I feel confident that the 2007 meeting will be even bigger and better. I am delighted that, by hosting this meeting, the Louisiana Supreme Court will have the opportunity to contribute to the recovery of New Orleans and the affected Southeastern Louisiana parishes. I look forward to greeting my fellow Chief Justices in our recently renovated Louisiana Supreme Court building in the French Quarter, and to ensuring them an enjoyable stay in a revitalized and recovered New Orleans," said Chief Justice Calogero.


With a membership consisting of the highest justices, judges or judicial officers of the fifty states, commonwealths and territories of the United States, the Conference of Chief Justices was established over 50 years ago to improve the administration of justice. The Conference accomplishes this mission by facilitating the exchange of information among its members, educating and training its members, promoting the independence and effectiveness of the judiciary, developing and advancing policies of common interest to the members, and by supporting adequate funding and resources for the operation of state courts.
