Order Governing the Continuing Operations of the Minnesota Judicial Branch and oneCourtMN Hearings Initiative Policy

Posted: Tuesday, April 19, 2022

On April 19, 2022, Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Lorie S. Gildea issued an order lifting all pandemic-related restrictions and announced a new Judicial Branch policy, the oneCourtMN Hearings Initiative Policy, laying out the framework for presumed hearing locations going forward.  Some hearing types that have been held remotely will return to in-person events, while many hearing types will continue to be held remotely unless exceptional circumstances exist as defined in the order. The policy contains a chart that indicates the presumed hearing location for each hearing type in all Non-Criminal case types.  The order and policy are effective June 6, 2022.

Hearings scheduled prior to the June 6, 2022, effective date will take place as stated in hearing notices.
