this pandemic has started, we have been hard at work utilizing both new and existing technology to adapt to evolving information and move the judicial system forward in this new reality. The Judicial system's greatest roles are providing a forum for the fair resolution of disputes, and protecting the rights of children, victims, and the accused. Even during the pandemic, our courtrooms have remained open for all emergency matters to protect the safety of our communities. Additionally, behind the scenes, our judges have been hard at work training to use new software, formulating innovative court procedures, and holding remote conferences and hearings. Going forward, as we begin to reopen, you will note changes in the format of court cases. These changes will promote public health and increase the efficiency of the Judicial system, and will include wearing masks and social distancing measures in courthouses, fewer required personal court appearances, and greater use of electronic filings, signatures, and remote hearings. We hope these changes will work to make the court system more accessible and safe for everyone.
