Supreme Court Updates Judicial Emergency Order

On April 21, the Vermont Supreme Court amended Administrative Order 49, the order declaring a Judicial Emergency.  Today’s amendments are here.

Reading this blog is not a substitute for reading the Court’s Order and amendments.  That being clear, today’s amendments:

  1. authorize hearings on motions to modify or enforce parent-child contact orders in juvenile cases when the Superior Court, in its discretion, determines that an emergency exists;
  2. authorize hearings on motions to modify or enforce parent-child contact orders in domestic cases when the Supeior Court, in its discretion, determines that an emergency exists;
  3. make changes to the rules that govern audio & visual hearings (V.R.C.P. 43.1; V.R.F.P. 17, V.R.Cr.P. 43); and,
  4. require all who enter Judiciary buildings to wear masks made of cloth over the nose and mouth.
