CIRCUIT COURT - DIVISION ONE

 

            In accordance with Kentucky Supreme Court Order 2021-16 issued 5-18-2021, and the Order of the Chief Circuit Judge in conformance therewith:

MOTION HOUR

Mondays

 

            Criminal (8:30am): All in-custody criminal matters, including arraignment, will be in person.

The Court will continue to offer the option of remote court attendance for all other matters.

 

            Civil (8:45am): The parties are encouraged to attend in person but may appear remotely.

 

JURY AND BENCH TRIALS

 

            All bench and jury trials will be held in person.

 

HEARINGS AND OTHER MATTERS

 

            Any hearing that will require testimony from witnesses or the introduction of any evidence will be held in person.

            For any other matter (except motion hour), the Court encourages in person attendance. However, the Court will continue to offer the remote option provided the party seeking to appear remotely provides notice to the Court and opposing counsel at least 7 days prior to the scheduled court appearance. The notice shall set forth the reasons for the request and will be subject to Court review.

            Notice shall be provided by email to jennifermiles@kycourts.net

***   ***   ***

 

            Effective AUGUST 16, 2021, remote appearances shall be by video Zoom. Each person appearing by video Zoom shall join the meeting with their name and case number displayed.

(Example: Atty. John Smith 21-CI-1234). Each party is expected to appear by video unless their circumstances only allow them to call into Zoom through a telephone.
