On January 14, 2021, Chief Justice Newby issued an order restoring to local judicial officials substantial decision-making authority over when and how to conduct jury trials and other in-person proceedings.
With that, the 11th Judicial District Court has updated their procedures:
- Hours of Operation are 8 am – 5 pm Monday – Friday
- Civil and Estate cases need an appointment
- Criminal cases do not need an appointment
- Only those with court business will be permitted into the building
- Only defendants and subpoenaed witnesses will be allowed in the building
- Call the day before to confirm your court date
- Your temperature will be taken at the door
