WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
COURT SAFETY – In response to the coronavirus outbreak, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is taking some precautions. Alaina Lancaster reports that the court is rescheduling two high-profile cases in Las Vegas, and relocating panel arguments initially scheduled for the court’s Seattle courthouse to Pasadena, California. The communications administrator for the Office of the Circuit Executive also said they will allow increased use of telephones and videoconferencing during the coronavirus emergency. The move comes as the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut issued an order barring people who visited certain foreign countries and communities in New York from their courthouses. New York state courthouses, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York also joined other federal courts in New York in moving to restrict anyone exhibiting flu-like symptoms from their premises.
