The Pierce County District Court remains committed to taking important steps to protect public health while ensuring continued access to justice and essential court services during the COVID-19 pandemic. On November 23, 2020 the Court issued an order suspending all criminal and civil jury trials through January 11, 2021. District Court obtains jurors from the Pierce County Superior Court. Due in part to the Governor’s extension of restricting gatherings and Superior Court’s order suspending jury trials, the District Court will postpone criminal and civil jury trials until at least March 1, 2021.
