PART A. PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE

RULE II. DOCKETING OF CASES, MOTIONS, APPLICATIONS; DESIGNATION OF LEAD COUNSEL; SESSIONS OF COURT

Section 1. Cases will be docketed in the order in which they are filed. No motion or application, except such as may be made in open court, will be considered, unless previously filed, numbered, and docketed.

The designated Lead Counsel will be responsible for the case and all notices and other communications with respect to it will be directed to the designated Lead Counsel. The designation of Lead Counsel may be changed at any time by ex parte motion. If a party desires to change the Lead Counsel, the new Lead Counsel will be promptly designated.


Section 3. The court will hold its sessions at its domicile in New Orleans or at other locations it deems appropriate. The dates and the hours of the sessions will be determined by the court and shall be noted on the calendar of hearings prepared by the Clerk as provided by Rule VI below.
