The Minnesota Supreme Court issued an Order Governing the Continuing Operations of the Minnesota Judicial Branch due to COVID-19 Pandemic. The following practice modifications apply to civil district court proceedings:

– Courts will continue to process cases.

– No civil jury trials will occur from November 20, 2020, until February 1, 2021.

– All civil proceedings will occur via remote technology unless the Chief Judge grants an exception for in-person proceedings.

– No person attending a proceeding may record the proceeding; the only permitted recording is the official recording created by the court and via media upon meeting specific criteria.
