~ ALL COURTS: REMOTE AND IN PERSON HEARINGS NOTICE ~

Effective March 7, 2022 we will be reopening the courtrooms of all three courts to the public. Each judge will determine which hearings will be held in person and which will be done remotely. Because the courtrooms will be open to the public, however, hearings will no longer be broadcast on YouTube. Each litigant should carefully look at their notice of hearing to determine if his or her hearing is in person or remote. If there are any questions, he or she should call the court.

Honorable Sara Lisznyai, Circuit Court Judge

 In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, on April 7, 2020 the Michigan Supreme Court implemented Administrative Order 2020-6 which expanded the authority of judicial officers to conduct proceedings remotely. AO 2020-6 is designed to help courts manage remote proceedings, including:

  • Allowing for confidential communication between a party and their lawyer;
  • Providing access to the public during the proceeding or immediately after via a video recording, unless the proceeding is closed or limited by court rule or statute; and,
  • Recording of the proceeding must be sufficient to produce a verbatim written transcript.

If you have questions about the posted video court proceedings for Circuit Court, please call (517) 437-4321.
