Presiding Judge Of Jefferson County Extends Virtual Court Proceeding Order

On July 15, 2021, the presiding judge of Jefferson County entered an Administrative Order extending the previously entered Order allowing the holding of non-jury court proceedings by video or audio conference. 

The previous Order provided Jefferson County Circuit Judges with discretion to hold virtual court hearings in all non-jury proceedings which included workers’ compensation cases. 

In light of the recent increase in the number of Delta variant related cases in Jefferson County, we anticipate some of our local judges will set workers’ compensation hearings, status conferences and trials via audio conference.
