Coronavirus/COVID-19 Impact on Traffic Courts
Updated: May 5, 2020
On March 22, 2020 the Missouri Supreme Court issued an order closing all traffic dockets (among other cases) through at least April 17, 2020. If you have a court date scheduled before that date, your case will be continued to a later time. However, the courts are still open for conducting business in the meantime. This means that if you have a warrant you need cleared up or some other emergency issue, your attorney can still help you handle that. Traffic lawyers can also still enter on a case for you and get started on handling your traffic law matters by requesting discovery and communicating with prosecuting attorneys about working out a plea agreement or amendment on your charge.
Although it is unknown how long the coronavirus will be keeping people shut in their homes, it is certain that your current pending cases will eventually have a court date and need to be dealt with. Our attorney is working diligently from home throughout this strange time and can answer any questions you have and help you get started.
