The summary judgment
article--Louisiana Code of Civil Procedure article 966--was amended in 2013
to clarify which issues and what evidence the court may
consider on such a motion. It is a lengthy article, and
practitioners can get bogged down trying to understand and satisfy its many
technical requirements. Additionally, one must be cognizant of the
various Rules of District Courts that apply in conjunction with article 966.
To aid in this endeavor, see this MSJ Checklist, which practitioners can use when preparing a motion for
summary judgment. It covers the high points, like when to file, how
to attach exhibits, and requirements for the memoranda.
