New Limitations at Court Facilities
Per an order
from Chief Justice Lorie S. Gildea, the Minnesota Judicial Branch is limiting in-person activities in court facilities in response to increased COVID-19 infection rates in Minnesota:
- Jury Trials: Jury trials in progress will continue until complete. No new jury trials will begin prior to February 1, 2021. Exceptions may be granted for in-person proceedings under limited circumstances.
- Remote Hearings: All hearings will be conducted remotely. Exceptions may be granted for in-person proceedings under limited circumstances.
- Public Access: At least one counter service window must be open during normal business hours. Services may be provided remotely or by appointment only. See below for current information on public access to our court facilities.
- Self-Help Center services are available by phone and email.
Public Access to a Wright Court Facilities Public service counter and a public access terminal (courthouse terminals) are available during normal business hours. Please be advised wait times may be longer due to decreased staff in the office.
Anyone pursuing in person assistance from court administration staff must wear a face covering, per the Supreme Court Order issued on July 7, 2020. Staff will not be able to assist customers who refuse to wear a face covering. If you do not have a face covering court staff will supply one for you.
