Future Court Schedule: County Criminal - Division E

(Revised – June 14, 2021)

Consistent with our local Administrative Orders, the Court has been handling all cases using Zoom with the exception of specific proceedings that the Court determined were proper to conduct as in person proceedings. In light of the recent Florida Supreme Court Order (AOSC21-17), the Court will now transition to scheduling all cases in person as follows:

  1. Effective July 9, 2021, all traffic and misdemeanor arraignments will be conducted in-person using staggered dockets that will continue to be scheduled on an hourly basis.
  2. All other cases scheduled through the end of July, 2021 will continue to be handled by Zoom, unless specifically set by the Court as an in-person proceeding.
  3. Effective August 2, 2021, all cases will be conducted in-person, unless the parties mutually agree to set the case for a Zoom proceeding with the consent of the Court.
