Happy Friday from Avalon and Brad, and welcome to another round-up of the week’s news about the judiciary. The judiciary was forced to undergo changes during the pandemic to keep its doors open, and now courts across the country are having serious discussions about what new rules should stick around. Plus, a new survey shows more than 60% of judges believe their courthouses are accessible to people with disabilities, but many are still worried about access to justice.
