Do I have to file my pleadings in the division to which the case is assigned?


No.  Venue only applies to the district.  28 U.S.C. 98(c)  Divisions were created for the convenience of the court in administration of cases.  LR 77.3  As a reminder, the Western District of Louisiana is a mandatory e-filing court.  If you have a login and password to CM/ECF, your pleadings should be filed electronically.  If your filing requires manual submission, it may be mailed or hand delivered to any our five divisions.  For location information, navigate to the home page and click the Courts tab and then Court Locations
