Federal Jury Trials In Southern District Off Until April 5

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Chief U.S. District Judge Jane E. Magnus-Stinson extended an order Wednesday suspending in-person jury trials in all divisions of the Southern District of Indiana until at least April 5.

Other than jury trials, court proceedings shall continue to proceed by telephone, by video teleconference, or in person, as ordered in a particular case, the order said.

Federal courthouses remain open, but clerk’s offices for the U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts in the four divisions of the Southern District of Indiana are closed to the public.

Magnus-Stinson earlier had suspended in-person jury trials in all divisions of the Southern District of Indiana until March 1.
