District court adjusts dockets for Covid-19

Court dockets

MONTAGUE – All District Court jury trials scheduled in Archer, Clay and Montague Counties have been cancelled through April 15, 2020, according to 97th District Judge Jack McGaughey.

“These cancellations follow guidelines issued by the Texas Office of Court Administration on March 12 in response to the unstable situation surrounding the spread of the cornonavirus,” Judge McGaughey said.

“This is a precautionary step to avoid the potential spread of the virus in large groups of people,” he added.

“Routine court dockets will proceed as under normal conditions, although case settings may be staggered and reset to avoid large numbers of people coming into the courtroom at one time,” he said.
