In addition, the Court will be continuing reduced in-office staffing in an effort to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.  Although the Court’s staff will be working remotely and will promptly and diligently attend to all matters, there may be a slight delay in responding to correspondence and other filings that are received by the Court only in hard copy.  

We thank the public and members of the bar for their cooperation and understanding as we deal with the public health threat posed by this pandemic.  Best wishes to all for continued health and safety.
