Connecticut courts and especially the New London Superior Court has been affected by COVID-19. The GA10 Superior Courthouse is currently operating out of the higher court located a few blocks down the street. After speaking to clerk personnel at the Judicial District New London Court located at 70 Huntington St, we were able to verify more details about the functions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The New London JD is one of the few Judicial District Courts functioning throughout the state.
“The New London Superior Court GA 10, the Norwich Superior Court GA 21, and the Danielson Superior Court GA 11 are all closed. Court case operations have been transferred to the New London JD Court until further notice”
Last week the Branch Executive Directors made the announcement to offer limited service to protect staff, Judges, public defendants, attorneys, and the public in general. Each court location open during the outbreak will be only attending Priority Level 1 functions. Included in this type of function are arraignments, domestic cases, and bail bonds. It was recently announced the ability to handle other non-priority cases through a drop box at the court’s front entrance.
