On June 8, the Connecticut chief court administrator, Judge Patrick Carroll, announced continuing efforts to resume Connecticut court operations. The plan outlines these upcoming changes:
Judge Carroll described the challenges in efforts to resume full court services but noted that public health and safety will continue to guide all operational planning. The Connecticut Judicial Branch will continue to resume court operations in an incremental way and will utilize emerging technologies to find efficiency, reduce cost and increase access to courts. This will include "virtual courtroom" technology allowing remote hearings. Currently, the Judicial Branch cannot predict when jury trials will resume, but jurors will not be summoned before September 1.
