Jury trials will not restart until Nov. 2

Jury trials cannot be considered unless there is a 7-day average in the county of less than 70 COVID-19 cases per million per day and less than 10 percent positive diagnostic tests, or there have been fewer than 20 new cases per day in the county over the last 7 days. Once these criteria are met, the Chief Judge must determine whether jury trials would create an excessive risk to public health.

The Court has consulted with local health officials and has reviewed the Mi Start Map update for Ingham County.

It is hereby ordered that pursuant to MCR 8.110, Administrative Orders 2020-14 and 2020-19, the 30th Circuit Court and the Ingham County Probate Court will not conduct jury trials until November 2, 2020. Those summoned for trials scheduled before November 2, 2020 need not report.
