James T. Genovese (born August 24, 1949) [2] is a Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court, having served since 2017.

"Justice Genovese’s judicial career began as a judge ad hoc of the Opelousas City Court from 1975-1989. He was elected district judge of the Twenty-Seventh Judicial District Court for the Parish of St. Landry in 1995 and served as district judge through 2004, whereupon he was elected to the Louisiana Third Circuit Court of Appeal. He served on the appellate court from 2005-2016. He was elected Associate Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court, commencing January 1, 2017."

In 2016 election, Genovese received 51 percent of the vote, narrowly defeating Judge Marilyn Castle. [3] The Louisiana Secretary of State lists Genovese as a Republican on its election returns but as a registered Independent on the voter portal. He may have switched registration after his election, or one of the party labels may be incorrect. [4]
