State of the Courts - CMBA News and Information

CMBA Updates & Legal News

Posted by: Michael Mullally on May 21, 2021

The judicial system was not exempt from pivoting its processes to reflect the COVID  mandates implemented by the State and Federal governments. Hear updates from all of the local courts (listed below) on what they've been doing, and what's to expect as the pandemic begins to wane. From maintaining digitizing hearings and submission forms, to adding barriers to promote social distancing, our court systems did not miss a beat in implementing the appropriate measures to continue to protect and serve the community. For specific updates, please review the program recording.

The recording is not eligible for CLE credit.
