It has come to our attention that there are emails being
sent out claiming to be from the Louisiana Third Circuit Court of Appeal. These
emails have various subject lines, but claim to be a "Pretrial Notice." Although
these mail messages appear to be from the Third Circuit, the actual address is
not a Third Circuit address. Please check the "From" address of any email that
you may get claiming to be from the Third Circuit. If the address is not in the
form of email@example.com, it is NOT from the Louisiana Third Circuit Court
of Appeal. These emails should be considered spam and deleted.
