The chief trial judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has opened the door for nontrial proceedings in the courthouse to resume by mid-July as Washington, D.C., nears lifting some restrictions implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chief Judge Beryl Howell said in a new order Tuesday that all jury trials are postponed through Aug. 1, but other proceedings in the D.C. courthouse could resume on July 15. That date could be pushed back if D.C. experiences another spike of COVID-19 cases. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan has set a July 16 hearing on the Justice Department’s effort to dismiss the criminal information against onetime Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.
