Information provided by the 18th Judicial District.

Update: The Chief Judge in the 18th Judicial District has extended the suspension of jury trials in four counties through Feb. 11. 

Previous information: 

If you are a juror, attorney, litigant or otherwise scheduled for a jury trial in the 18th Judicial District, please read this update. All jury trials have been suspended until Jan. 28 due to the public health risk associated with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its variants.

Read the Chief Judge’s order, which became effective Jan. 3.

Other court operations are being handled online or via phone. Visit the 18th Judicial District’s website if you are scheduled to appear or have other court business.

The decision to suspend jury trials is not one undertaken lightly. As a result, the Chief Judge will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 data for all four counties and reserves the right to rescind, modify, or extend the court order at any time based upon then-existing data, health-related considerations, input from members of the bench and stakeholders, and all other relevant factors impacting jury trials.
