After a 20-year renovation (and a 46-year absence from the French Quarter), the Court returned in 2004 to the c.1910 state court building in New Orleans' French Quarter.[1]

The Supreme Court of Louisiana is the highest court and court of last resort in the U.S. state of Louisiana. The modern Supreme Court, composed of seven justices, meets in the French Quarter of New Orleans.

The Supreme Court, and Louisiana state law, are historically based in the colonial governments of France and Spain during the 18th century. The current Supreme Court traces its roots back to these beginnings.
