COURT EXTENDS LIMITATIONS ON JURY PROCEEDINGS
The order also extends a deadline for jury recommendations
In an emergency order posted Thursday, the Texas Supreme Court extended until October 1 the limits on jury proceedings in previous pandemic-related orders. In pertinent part the latest order specifies that the Office of Court Administration, in coordination with the regional presiding judges and local administrative judges, should assist trial courts in conducting a limited number of jury proceedings before October 1, whether in-person or remote proceedings involving grand and petit jurors, and no later than August 28 must outline recommendations to the Texas Supreme Court regarding jury proceedings.
