The State of Louisiana has issued a Shelter in Place order for the entire state. Under the Governor’s order, our firm is considered an essential business (providing services to financial institutions) and is still able to operate. Although the GSE’s have varying moratoriums on foreclosure actions, most courts are working with reduced staff and hours, so pleadings are still able to be filed where applicable. Most Bankruptcy court hearings are proceeding telephonically, whereas Civil hearings are being postponed until the shelter in place order is lifted and it’s safe to resume hearings. Many sheriff’s offices are following the same protocol and postponing sheriffs sales due to safety, and service of process is slowed for the same reasons. The State of Louisiana has not issued any foreclosure or eviction moratoriums at this time. We expect that once this health situation has subsided, the courts will resume normal activities and reset hearings.
