Los Angeles Superior Court Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile has issued an implementation order pursuant to the emergency powers granted to him by Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye under Government Code Section 68115.
“This order will allow us to comply with social distancing and to prevent the spread of the virus within our community,” Brazile said. “The Court will reopen only for emergency and essential matters to protect the most vulnerable in our communities.”
Brazile reminded the public that no jurors should report, and no additional prospective jurors will be summoned for jury service for 30 days.
Over the next few days, there will be additional news explaining in further detail the extent to which the LA Superior Court is scaling back judicial and court resources in response to the current public health crisis.
