Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile Issues New General Order Extending Trials as COVID-19 Increases in Los Angeles County

Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile executed a General Order to extend enumerated legal proceedings in Civil, Family, Probate, Juvenile and Criminal Divisions of the Court based on Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye’s approval of the Court’s request for emergency powers under Government Code section 68115. Today’s Order seeks to balance the need to increase the Court’s workload while keeping courthouses safe by reducing in-person appearances as COVID-19 rates of infections continue to increase in Los Angeles County.
