Second Amended General Order No. 20-05 - trials and evidentiary hearings during COVID-19 pandemic

Tuesday, March 15, 2022

The court has revised its General Order No. 20-05 governing trials and evidentiary hearings during the pandemic.  Effective immediately, the assigned judge may either (1) conduct a video trial or hearing using the Zoom for Government platform; (2) conduct an in-person trial or hearing in the courthouse with basic COVID protocols (face masks and social distancing) observed; or (3) conduct an in-person trial or hearing in the courthouse with basic COVID protocols observed plus additional protocols that the judge requires to protect health and safety.  The revised General Order only concerns trials and evidentiary hearings.  Motion calls (the subject of General Order No. 20-03) are not affected.
