Supreme Court of Georgia Issues Third Extension of Statewide Judicial Emergency

Third Order Extending Statewide Judicial Emergency
The Order from Supreme Court of Georgia Chief Justice Harold D. Melton declaring a Statewide Judicial Emergency, which would have expired on Friday, June 12, 2020, at 11:59 p.m., is further extended until Sunday, July 12, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. That Order has been extended twice, with modifications, by orders issued on April 6 and May 11, 2020.

In part:

After consulting with the Judicial Council of Georgia, the Judicial COVID-19 Task Force, and other judicial partners, and recognizing again that most in-court proceedings compel the attendance of various individuals rather than allowing them to decide how best to protect their own health, it is hereby determined that the Order should be extended again, but with significant modifications.
