NEW ORLEANS — The Orleans Civil Courts Building will remain closed for evaluations, according to the Orleans Civil District Court. 

The Loyola Avenue building was forced to close February 12th when a suspicious fire damaged the first floor. 

It was supposed to reopen Ash Wednesday, but repair and remediation crews did not think it was ready yet. They planned to reopen the building Monday, February 27, but the Court now says the building will remain closed until "all necessary environmental and safety procedures are completed." 

The Civil District Court Duty Division E Judge for the week has been temporarily relocated to 1340 Poydras Street on the 4th floor.

The Court has not given a specific date on when they could reopen, but said they will post updates on their website. We will bring you those updates as soon as we receive them.
