SCOKY: New guidance on court operations
By Leigh Anne Hiatt
Frankfort, KY - Today the Supreme Court entered two orders that provide further guidance on how the Judicial Branch can safely carry out court operations. These orders clarify requirements for court facilities and proceedings, address staffing concerns raised by circuit court clerks, and provide updates on the handling of jury trials and evictions.
"It's been almost two months since the Supreme Court first reopened court facilities to in-person services," Chief Justice of Kentucky John D. Minton Jr. said in an announcement to justices, judges, circuit court clerks and court personnel. "During that time, we've all gotten a crash course in what works and what doesn't during a global emergency. We've received a significant amount of input from court employees and elected officials and through our Reopening Task Forces for Circuit, Family and District courts. This feedback has been integral to guiding our decisions on processes and procedures as we move forward."
Administrative Order 2020-55 replaces Administrative Orders 2020-43 and 2020-47, both dated May 29, 2020, in their entirety. The highlights are:
The Administrative Office of the Courts in Frankfort is the operations arm of the state court system. The AOC supports the activities of nearly 3,400 court system employees and 406 elected justices, judges and circuit court clerks. As the fiscal agent for the court system, the AOC executes the Judicial Branch budget.
