COVID - 19 Jury Updates


Update for January 6, 2021


Supreme Court extends restrictions on jury trials, grand juries until April 1, 2021

The Supreme Court entered two new Administrative Orders that further extend restrictions on jury trials, grand juries, show cause dockets, judicial sales and in-person meetings of Kentucky Court of Justice committees, commissions, task forces and boards. This action was necessary to address the continued surge of COVID-19 cases across the commonwealth.


                                                   replaces Administrative Order 2020-71 


                                                   replaces Administrative Order 2020-72


The orders postpone all jury trials until April 1, 2021 and require grand juries to either be conducted remotely or suspended.
