2011 Press Releases


(504) 310-2590

 JANUARY 31, 2011


The judges of the Court of Appeal, Fourth Circuit, State of Louisiana announced today that a panel of judges will “ride the circuit” to hold court in a location outside of the court’s usual venue at 410 Royal Street in the New Orleans French Quarter. On Thursday, February 3, 2011, at 10:00 a.m., Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal Judges Dennis Bagneris, Sr., Terri Love, and Max Tobias, Jr. will hear oral arguments of the official court docket of cases at the Justice Revius O. Ortique, Jr. Mock Trial Center on the campus of Dillard University. The Fourth Circuit has jurisdiction over civil and criminal appeals originating from the trial courts of Orleans, Plaquemines, and St. Bernard Parishes.

The goal of this event is to provide students and area citizens with a snapshot of the volume, variety, and complexity of the court’s caseload by bringing the court to them. “Justice Ortique was a judicial trailblazer, civil rights activist, and mentor to many judges and we are honored to hold oral argument at a location that recognizes his contributions to Louisiana law and public service,” stated Judge Love.

Now deceased, Justice Ortique was the first African-American elected to serve on the Louisiana Supreme Court. He was elected in 1992 and served until 1994. As an attorney and a judge, he engaged in many landmark decisions. The Justice Revius O. Ortique, Jr. Mock Trial Center grew out of Dillard University’s commitment to undergraduate students who seek careers in law, government service, criminal justice, social work, public policy, and environmental justice. The Center’s activities are uniquely focused on Justice Ortique’s archival papers, his endowed chair in political science and social justice, pre-law scholarships and the Annual Law and Society Lecture.

The public is invited to attend the oral arguments at the Dillard University Justice Revius O. Ortique, Jr. Mock Trial Center. For more information, contact Danielle Schott, Clerk of Court, at (504) 412-6000.
