The New York State Court System is returning to in-person courthouse operations this week.
They have been closed since mid-March, but now judges and staff are returning.
The court will now accept new cases to file electronically. This hasn’t happened since March 16th.
All judges and their chamber staff can return to the courthouse for administrative duties in five judicial districts.
“And we will be slightly enhancing our staffing levels in each building in the district so that we can begin to prepare the back offices to be ready ourselves for more significant in-person operations,” said Justice Craig Doran, Administrative Judge for New York’s Seventh Judicial District.
