Supreme Court Prolongs Partial Closure

The Federal Supreme Court extended the partial closure of federal courts for an additional 22 working days as a precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Prior to that, the federal courts in the country had been partially closed from April 19 to May 08, 2020, only conducting emergency hearings on pending court cases. In addition to the judges who are currently serving, more have been added to respond to cases related to the state of emergency. This includes increasing the number of appellate judges at courts at different levels, according to the statement from the Court. Partially closing the courts where at least 18,000 clients are served each day will maintain physical distancing even though the Federal Supreme Court has announced partial closure for the third time since the pandemic
