According to this article on, Orleans Parish Civil District Court will reopen “early next month” in temporary quarters at 1056 E. Worthy Street in Gonzales, according to Chief Judge Ethel Sims Julien. While that address does not map precisely on Google, here’s the approximate location.

Judge Julien states, in the article, that “The judges will be available to sign pleadings, conduct hearings and hold conferences on non-jury matters” — but don’t count on jury trials anytime soon.

The real estate records formerly housed by the Register of Conveyances and Recorder of Mortgages’ offices in the Civil Court basement at 421 Loyola Ave. should be available for inspection starting Oct. 10, the judge stated, after they are moved to an as-yet-undetermined New Orleans office building.

The article concludes that “Anyone with questions about the operations of the court and related offices can call 1 (225) 342-1687.”
