First, the Chief Judge and the other Judges are very concerned for the safety of the court’s staff, the clerk’s staff, and the citizens during this difficult time. Therefore, effective Monday, March 16, and for the next 30 days no jurors will be summonsed to appear on a Thursday or Friday. The Chief asked that the clerk staff call in only 200 jurors on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays (reduction of panel). All large panels shall be canceled for the next 30 days unless the Chief Judge is informed that all parties agree that it is necessary to proceed and she approves the panel. Criminal cases will take priority over other trials.
