Courtrooms Closing Daily at Noon and at 4:20 pm

Chief Superior Judge Brian Grearson sent the following message to judges and to courts:

“We need to do a better job of respecting staff time by maintaining consistent court hours. We have received too many reports that some courts are routinely running into the lunch hour and extending courts after 4:30, sometimes until 5 or later and this is infringing on the personal time of staff. 

To address this concern, clerks and coms will instruct staff that the courtrooms will be closed at noon and at 4:20, except in cases involving jury selection and trials.

I would ask for your support in adhering to this directive.”
