The Louisiana Supreme Court Committee to Study Plain Civil Jury Instructions has drafted proposed Opening Instructions for use in all cases, proposed Interim Instructions on selected issues, and proposed Closing Instructions for use in most cases.  These instructions may now be found on the Louisiana Supreme Court’s website (http://www.lasc.org/) for the next thirty days.

Interested parties who wish to comment on these proposed instructions during the thirty-day period may do so via email, facsimile, or U.S. Mail. Please direct all emails to tmatta@lajao.org. Comments may be faxed to 504-310-2587 or mailed to Louisiana Supreme Court, 400 Royal Street, Suite 1190, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130. Please address all comments to Tereze Matta.

Once the thirty-day period has expired, the Committee to Study Plain Civil Jury Instructions will review all comments, make any changes it deems appropriate, and then submit a final draft to the Louisiana Supreme Court for review and approval.

 

Thank you,
Committee to Study Plain Civil Jury Instructions
