A new LASC General Order has been issued that extends certain Criminal and Juvenile deadlines as the Court balances access to justice with its commitment to safeguard the well-being of court users.
The extension comes as the Court ’s application for relief, which will assist the Court to safely continue its careful restoration of court operations as the highly infectious Delta variant continues to spread in LA County, was recently granted by California Chief Justice Tani Cantil Sakauye.
The new Order also states that in accordance with General Order 2021-GEN-023-00, all persons – regardless of vaccination status – are required to wear face coverings over their nose and mouth while in a courthouse.
In addition, it mandates that persons seeking services from the Clerk’s Office, court support services, and/or the Self -Help Centers are encouraged to schedule appointments.
