PRESIDING JUDGE KEVIN C. BRAZILE ANNOUNCES CLOSURE OF ALL SUPERIOR COURT OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY COURTHOUSES
Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile this evening ordered all 38 courthouses closed on Monday, June 1, 2020, in the interest of public safety. Presiding Judge Brazile made the decision to close all courthouses in the nation’s largest trial court after Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva announced a countywide curfew that took effect at 6 p.m. on May 31, 2020.
“Out of an abundance of caution, I am taking the extraordinary step of closing our courthouses tomorrow to protect the safety of the public, judicial officers and employees,” Presiding Judge Brazile said. “This is not a decision I make lightly. But public safety is always our paramount concern.”
Additional updates will be provided tomorrow as information becomes available.
