COVID-19 Preventative Actions
In an effort to balance constitutionally protected due process rights of citizens during an emergency such as the current public health emergency, the following procedures have been established for conducting court business in the CCLs for the months of March and April 2020. As the situation continues to evolve, we will provide further information and updates.
Arraignment dockets have been cancelled. Attorneys & pro se parties should call or e-mail the Coordinator of the Court to re-schedule.
No jury panels will be ordered for March & April.
Regular criminal dockets, including jury trials, will be re-scheduled.
Each CCL will have one jail docket each week. The docket will be at 1:30 and will be limited to no more than 10 defendants. Requests to add a defendant to a jail docket should be directed to the court coordinator for the court having a jail docket on the requested day.

Juvenile dockets have been cancelled. The cases will be given new dates as they are scheduled. If there are emergency matters that need to be heard, they will be heard.
