State Delay/Information
Louisiana There are “NO Delays” in processing requests and reporting of results.

Court Closures / Delays

We expect this list to grow. Please expect delays in many jurisdictions across the country, particularly in areas where clerks need to be involved to verify ID’s, get case details not on the PAT, file orders, etc. Almost all, if not all courts are short staffed, not only due to illness, but also because most schools are cancelled, and many states are on lock down. With increased testing we expect this to get worse before it gets better. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
