NOTICE TO THE BAR AND PUBLIC: FUTURE OF COURT OPERATIONS – CONTINUATION OF BOTH IN-PERSON AND VIRTUAL COURT EVENTS

The Supreme Court has authorized a framework for court events to continue to be conducted both in person and virtually, now and after the COVID-19 pandemic, as set forth in the attached November 18, 2021 Order.

The Court in a July 16, 2021 notice invited written comments as to how court proceedings should be conducted in light of lessons learned during COVID-19. Having considered 132 comments, including from legal associations and an array of individual attorneys and members of the public, the Court has approved a structure for the future.


The Court will provide further guidance as to how to conduct certain events, including involuntary civil commitment proceedings and jury selections.

Questions on the Court’s November 18, 2021 Order should be directed to the Office of the Administrative Director of the Courts at (609) 376-3000.
