      Announcements                            

   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 xxxxxx@la3circuit.org, it is NOT from the Louisiana Third Circuit Court of Appeal. These emails should be considered spam and deleted.
