ORDER EXTENDING STATE OF EMERGENCY, SUSPENSION OF JURY TRIALS, AND SUSPENSION OF IN-PERSON COURT PROCEEDINGS
On December 22, 2020, the Court extended the State of Emergency and the suspension of jury trials and reinstated the suspension of in-person court proceedings. In light of the continued record number of COVID-19 cases and related hospitalizations and deaths in Tennessee and the Governor’s issuance of Executive Order 73 on December 22, 2020, and under the constitutional, statutory, and inherent authority of the Tennessee Supreme Court, the Court adopts the following provisions: 1) The suspension of all jury trials is extended through the close of business on Wednesday, March 31, 2021, subject only to exceptions which may be granted by the Chief Justice on a case-by-case basis. 2) The suspension of all in-person proceedings in all state and local courts in Tennessee, including but not limited to municipal, juvenile, general sessions, trial, and appellate courts, is extended through the close of business on Wednesday, March 31, 2021, subject to the exceptions enumerated in the paragraph 3 of the Court’s December 22, 2020 order.
