Houston, TX asked in Real Estate Law for Louisiana

Q: forced sale of prop. by 2 heirs all defendants were included now paperwork says 3 indiv. will be addressed later why?

It was my grandparents' home in Louisiana, two siblings sued their 2 remaining siblings and the heirs of their deceased siblings. Originally all the defendants were named as being" sued to force a sale...We received the final judgment to force the sale however now the defendants with the exception of three 1 sibling and two grandchildren who are listed as having to be addressed at a later date upon the choice of the plaintiffs

Why would that be if the forced sale was ruled? and we all have as defendant's equal shares?

A: The Court must determine Title, and apparently it has found another Tenant In Common. There will be further Orders from the Court after the Sale concerning Confirming the Sale, Authorizing the Conveyance, and Disbursing the net proceeds, etc. Apparently all Heirs were not originally joined.
