With the rising concerns of the COVID-19 virus, and the expert medical opinions from the Governor’s Office, the Judges of the General Division voted Wednesday, March 18, to limit the number of Judges and staff in the Justice Center on a daily basis beginning on Friday, March 20, through Friday, April 10. 

To be clear, the Court remains open, but efforts will focus primarily on incarcerated individuals and all emergency matters.

Jurors should call 216-698-2977after 4:30pm the day before their summons date to determine if they need to report in person to the Justice Center. For more information on the new juror reporting procedures, click here.
