IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:
1. Prior Order: All provisions of the April 6, 2020 Order of
this Court shall remain in place, except as expressly modified
herein. To the extent that proceedings can be conducted by
remote conferencing, judges are encouraged to conduct all court
matters.
2. Jury Trials: No civil or criminal jury trial shall
commence in any Louisiana state court before June 30, 2020.
3. Remote Proceedings: The consent for remote proceedings in
civil matters required in Section 6 of this Court’s April 6,
2020 Order shall not be unreasonably withheld by any party,
which shall be enforced by the trial judge pursuant to the
authority granted by Louisiana Code of Civil Procedure Article
191, or as expressly provided by law.
The Court may issue further Orders regarding this
matter as necessary to address the circumstances arising from
this pandemic and will post such Orders on the Court’s website
