The Louisiana Supreme Court is lifting its COVID 19-related moratorium on jury trials in the state as of March 31.

“It is imperative that members of the public feel safe in returning to our courthouses for jury duty. Serving as a juror is one of the most important civic responsibilities to be undertaken by our citizens, and it is the courts’ responsibility to ensure their safety,” Chief Justice John Weimer said.
