Covid-19 Judicial District Plans

On April 24, 2020, the Tennessee Supreme Court issued an Order that allowed each judicial district to develop a plan to begin conducting additional in-person hearings. Until a plan is approved by the Chief Justice, all courts in the judicial district are to operate under the Court's March 25th Order. Below are the plans approved by the Court. As circumstances change, updated plans will be posted here.
