ISC Order RE: Commencement of Jury Trials and Grand Jury Impanelment

The Court’s September 10, 2020 Order, as well as this Court’s September 16, 2020, Order In Re: Grand Jury Proceedings, established a standard to determine when certain jury proceedings could commence. The standard articulated was based up on the incidence rate of confirmed or presumed COVID-19 cases in the relevant county.
A primary purpose of these orders was to address the substantial health and safety risks upon all jury trial and grand jury participants caused by community spread of COVID-19 cases, while seeking to also protect the legal rights of parties.
