“This order will allow us to comply with social distancing and to prevent the spread of the virus within our community,” Presiding Judge Brazile said. “The Court will reopen Friday only for emergency and essential matters to protect the most vulnerable in our communities.”
Presiding Judge Brazile reminded the public that no jurors should report, and no additional prospective jurors will be summoned for jury service for 30 days.
