Safe use of juries during pandemic

The Kansas Supreme Court issued Administrative Order 2020-PR-050 creating the Ad Hoc Jury Task Force to analyze issues courts will face when jury operations resume in district courts. The task force will study and recommend:

  • ways to conduct jury trials and grand jury proceedings while protecting the safety of participants;

  • how to summon juries while following safety directives;

  • how to explain the process to the public; and

  • other actions to help resume jury operations.
