During the past week, we have made significant progress in restoring our on-line operations, including JeffNet.
Hurricane Ida, which, among other things, caused the loss of power and system connectivity, enabled the malware attack that led to the disruption of our on-line systems. We fully expect that those systems will be completely operational shortly.
A further statement will be issued in due course.
The JeffNet online records system is currently down due to a malware attack. We’ve been working around the clock to determine the malware source and to restore our JeffNet system. We are working with law enforcement, and we’ve hired a forensic cyber-security firm to assist us.
Our investigatory and restorative efforts are in their early stages, but we have made considerable progress in restoring our systems and isolating the malware offenders.
We will furnish additional information as the investigation proceeds.
Due to extensive damage in Jefferson Parish and the surrounding area caused by hurricane Ida, 24th Judicial District Court, First Parish Court, and Second Parish Court are closed until Monday Sept. 20, 2021; Juvenile Court is closed until Monday Sept. 13, 2021. 2nd Parish Court Criminal be open in a limited capacity on Monday Sept. 13th, 2021. The dates of closure are declared legal holidays. Matters scheduled before each Division of Court on that date are continued and will be rescheduled following resumption of court operations. Legal deadlines are extended until the Court re-opens.
