Court Operations Update

Moss & Barnett Advocate (Spring 2021 edition)

While civil litigators have embraced remote technology, we are beginning to see a return to in-person depositions, mediations, and arbitrations. In our state court system, pandemic-related modifications remain in place, including the following:

  • Hearings across all case types will continue to be conducted remotely to the extent possible.
  • In-person civil jury trials may be held at the discretion of the chief judge and district court administrator.
  • Remote civil jury trials may be held on agreement of the presiding judge and parties.

Operations in federal court in the District of Minnesota remain modified to encourage remote appearances; however, we expect to see a return to in-person civil jury trials, bench trials, and hearings on a case-by-case basis.

Our litigators practice in Minnesota and throughout the country. If you have questions about a civil litigation matter, please contact your attorney at Moss & Barnett.
