The Judicial Branch’s ​Respons​​e to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

The Michigan Supreme Court and the State Court Administrative ​​​​Office (SCAO) have developed and are continually updating a COVID-19 response plan to assist the state’s judiciary. Our plan focuses on fulfilling three key obligations: to protect the health of litigants, judicial branch employees, and the public using court facilities; to maintain critical judicial branch functions; and to provide appropriate judicial input to the process of protecting the public. 

We are updating judges and court administrators on a regular basis via e-mail with recommend​ations that address current conditions and guidance provided by the executive branch. Please note that conditions may change rapidly and to contact your local court for information about your case. 


Special Procedures Required by Administrative/ Executive Order​

Topics on this page address executive and administrative orders relevant to trial court proceedings.  The page will be updated as new information becomes available.
