Motion for Summary Judgment Checklist

Posted 4 years 18 days ago ago by hesterd@ksbrlaw.com

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.
