 AUGUST 16, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson announced today Governor John Bel Edwards issued an Executive Order JBE 2016-53 suspending all deadlines applicable to legal proceedings, including prescription and preemption, in all Louisiana state courts, administrative agencies and boards.


“In this time of disastrous disruption of Louisiana citizens’ lives, services, and the infrastructure of the justice system, this emergency suspension of deadlines in state legal, administrative and regulatory proceedings is certainly a welcome relief for members of the Louisiana Bar, their clients and all those with pending matters”, said Chief Justice Johnson.


The Executive Order is effective from Friday, August 12, 2016, through, Friday, September 9, unless amended, modified, terminated, or rescinded by the Governor, or terminated by operation of law.


Additionally, for more information about the most current court closures and re-openings visit the Louisiana Supreme Court web site homepage at www.lasc.org.
