The COVID-19 Pandemic has significantly affected the Florida state court system’s ability to operate in its traditional manner. We encourage our members to stay up to date on the adjustments being made to the function of Florida’s criminal courts during the Pandemic. In March 2020, the Florida Supreme Court began issuing administrative orders addressing the functionality of the Florida state court system.
