Print-friendly reprint

The U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware modified its COVID-19 standing order today. Although the Court remains open, all jury trials scheduled to begin before June 30, 2020, are continued under the revised order. Jury proceedings affected by the order will be reset by further order of the assigned judge. The Court has provided, however, that individual judicial officers may continue to schedule and hold in courtroom hearings, conferences, and bench trials at their discretion.

All other provisions of the Court’s previous standing orders related to the coronavirus emergency, including the Court’s March 18, 2020 standing order, remain in effect.
