2020 Annual Report | 16th Circuit press releases
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.
