Maryland Courts Closed Through June 5, 2020
On April 14, 2020, the Maryland Judiciary entered a new Administrative Order that expands and extends the emergency operations of courts through June 5, 2020. All court matters scheduled to be heard between March 16, 2020 through June 5, 2020, are postponed or suspended, unless otherwise ordered. Courts may continue to conduct remote hearings for emergency matters.
If you are in need of protection and are seeking a peace or protective order, or an ERPO (extreme risk protective order), the District Court Commissioner in your county is still hearing and issuing these orders. The Court is still hearing all new protective, peace, and extreme risk protective order (ERPO) petitions, but they are being handled by Commissioners. If you are the victim of domestic violence, do not hesitate to seek assistance from an attorney at Ethridge Quinn and we will guide you through the process.
