On Thursday, May 21, 2020, the Supreme Court of Georgia will issue orders designed to keep the Court operating to the fullest extent possible during and after the statewide judicial emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Court takes this action recognizing that most of the deadlines imposed by the Court’s rules pertain to the e-filing of written documents rather than proceedings requiring in-person contact.
“We have cases that are ready to move,” Chief Justice Harold D. Melton said. “We have
the capacity to move them safely. So we will. This is what the latest extension of the declaration is trying to accomplish across the state.”
