Jury trials delayed another month

Jury trials in state courts are being delayed another month until after June 30, under an order issued Friday by Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald.

The order said grand jury proceedings may resume June 1 as directed by chief judges of each circuit.

Because of the COVID-19 crisis, jury trials have been postponed along with nonurgent court business since March 16.

Recktenwald established the Committee on Operational Solutions, which is planning ways to safely return to full court operations.
