Jury Trials are Back!

Jury Trials are back in Lee County! Both Civil and Criminal jury trials. As you know Jury trials were suspended in March of 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The Courts have implemented safety measure to protect members of the public while serving on the jury as well as protecting all litigants and court personnel.

Temperature checks, face coverings, continuous cleaning, hand sanitizer stations, and social distancing, according to Amended Administrative Order 20-23. The order outlines how and when jury trials may safely proceed in each county. The 20th Circuit Chief Judge Michael T. McHugh has directed the Lee Clerk of Courts to begin reissuing juror summons for trials scheduled to begin on Sept. 14, 2020.
