Chief Justice Harold D. Melton announced that he will extend the Statewide Judicial Emergency for another month, until Sunday, July 12, 2020, but with
significant modifications.

All Georgia courts shall continue to operate under the restrictions set forth in that Order as extended. Under the new extension order, deadlines for jury trial proceedings (including statutory speedy trial demands), deadlines for grand jury proceedings, and deadlines calculated by reference to the date of a civil or criminal jury trial or grand jury proceeding shall remain suspended and tolled. All other deadlines imposed on litigants shall be reimposed effective as of July 14, 2020, as further explained within the Order which can be found HERE.

More information is available on the Supreme Court of Georgia’s Website.

You can access the Original Order, First Extension Order, and the Second Extension Order on our website.

Stay safe and well, everyone!
