Case Reassignments in the Eighth Judicial District Court Effective Jan. 4, 2021

On Dec. 31, 2020, the Eighth Judicial District Court issued Administrative Order 20-25 reassigning cases to the departments in both the Civil/Criminal Division and the Family Division of the court. The order includes charts listing the criminal in-custody, out-of-custody and lower-level arraignment schedules for judges on those calendars.

In addition, the order also modifies the court rules in response to newly effective statues and administrative orders which make the court procedures obsolete. As a result, minor guardianship cases shall be excluded from the “one judge, one family” provision of the Eighth Judicial District Court Rule (EJDCR) 5.103. EJDCRs 5.701 through 5.710 are suspended.
