Michigan Trial Courts Impacted by Coronavirus Precautions

March 26, 2020

In response to restrictions imposed on social gatherings due to the coronavirus, the Michigan Supreme Court has issued an administrative order outlining how Michigan court facilities will ensure that the public and court personnel are protected from the outbreak.

Among other things, the order limits courtroom access to no more than 10 people (including staff) and limits court activity to essential functions. While a significant amount of court activity can be conducted via remote means, those who are party to a lawsuit should contact their attorney to determine what impact the order may have on their case.

Those contemplating the filing of a lawsuit may contact any member of the Varnum trial and litigation team for help navigating the additional requirements stemming from the new order. Varnum continues to adapt to ensure both continuous service to our clients and a safe, healthy workplace for our attorneys and staff.
