10th Circuit Suspends All Jury Trials Through April 2020

In this Circuit’s continuing effort to combat the Covid-19 virus, the 10th Circuit announces today that all jury trials, civil and criminal, are suspended through April 2020. See Administrative Order 2020 – 08. This applies to Peoria, Tazewell, Marshall, Putnam and Stark Counties. The Circuit has already reduced its operations and access to its courthouses, circuit-wide. The Supreme Court has approved such action and allowed speedy trial timelines to be adjusted accordingly.

For our petit trial jurors: If your jury duty report date is anytime in April 2020, you are excused from jury service. If you have any questions about your status, please call the jury commission contact number on your summons. 

For our Grand jurors: If you have been summoned for Grand Jury service in April or after, please call the phone number on your summons for more information. Grand jury service has NOT necessarily been canceled circuit-wide.
