 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.
