Chief Justice Issues New and Amended Pandemic Administrative Order
Chief Justice Charles Canady issued two new and two amended administrative orders late on November 23 addressing court operations during the pandemic.
They extend the term of the court COVID-19 Workgroup to July 2, 2021, and update requirements, benchmarks, and guidelines for the four phases of a return to normal statewide court operations as a vaccine is deployed.
The new orders are AOSC20-109 on appellate courts and AOSC20-110 on the workgroup’s term. The amended orders are AOSC20-23 on trial courts and AOSC20-32 on updates to the four phases.
