As everyone is aware, business as we all know it has come to a temporary halt due to the current CONVID-19 outbreak. Even the court systems have taken precautionary measures, closing most courts until March 31, 2020. There are some exceptions to this temporary closure, which we will outline below, but for the time being, if you have a current criminal court case pending at 201 Poplar, then the following reset dates have been announced:
The above dates are for cases pending in General Sessions Criminal Court Divisions 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 25. They are also applicable to Criminal Court Division I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, IX, and X. These courtrooms will be operating on a limited docket, mainly for in-custody inmates with pending bond hearings or plea agreements.
Courts will be extending any orders of protection or temporary injunctions that were to expire before March 21, 2020, until April 6, 2020. If you are dealing with a traffic citation, we recommend you call the Memphis City Court Clerks Office at (901)636-3400. Civil Courts in Memphis, TN will also be closed through March 31, 2020.
As always, we strongly advise that anyone with a pending legal matter stay in contact with their attorney to verify court settings. During this court closure period, attorneys at The Chiozza Law Firm will still be available for assistance.
