Court Proceedings During Covid-19 Graphic

Covid-19 Update | May 2021

On May 14, 2021, the Tennessee Supreme Court updated Covid-19 court proceedings. Consult your attorney for specifics on how these policies might impact case proceedings in your county. Certain procedures and mandates are still at the discretion of the judge assigned to your case. See below for details, or review the legal document here.

According to a report published by the Tennessee Bar Association:

“The Tennessee Supreme Court today issued an order to further loosen COVID-19 restrictions on in-person proceedings. Masks are now optional for those coming in-person to court, the order to stay six feet apart has been reduced to three feet and courtroom capacity requirements have been lifted, effective immediately. Judicial districts and judges still have discretion to limit the number of people in a courtroom and compliance with current CDC guidelines is still encouraged. The order also states that courts not already doing so, should begin utilizing technology to avoid in-person proceedings. Read more from the Administrative Office of the Courts.”
