Juneau v. State ex rel. Dep’t of Health and Hospitals—Killed by the Calendar: A Seemingly Unfair Result But a Correct Action

Note by Collin S. Buisson

This note explains and analyzes the Louisiana First Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Juneau v. State ex rel. Department of Health and Hospitals, 2015-1382 (La. App. 1 Cir. 7/7/16);197 So. 3d 398. The First Circuit held that the nieces and nephews of a personal injury claimant who died while his claim was still pending could not recover proceeds from his suit, since their mother—the claimant's sister—predeceased the claimant.
