New Haven Courts Information
Prior to New Haven courts implementing changes to their regular court operations, here is a recap of why the changes were necessary. Connecticut reported its first positive case of COVID-19 coronavirus less than four weeks ago. The first case happened in Wilton CT. Today is April 1st and we have close to 3600 confirmed cases. The virus is spreading throughout the state. All eight CT counties have cases now.
As Chief Court Administrator, Patrick L. Carrol III, and Chief Justice Richard A. Robinson stated in a statement released yesterday, “it is necessary to implement the following unprecedented measures to protect the public, the bar, our employees and judges”. Consequently, many CT courts will be closing effective Mach 19, 2020.”
See the list of Courts that will remain open at this time. List of open courts in CT
