The Idaho Supreme Court’s current COVID-19 emergency order will be rescinded as
of April 1, 2023, the Court ordered today.
Current measures governing remote court proceedings will continue, however, while the Court assesses potential long-term changes to court rules on the topic.
These changes were announced in two orders now posted on the Court’s website.
Since 2020, the Court has issued a series of emergency orders to ensure Idaho’s
courts remain open to anyone wishing to bring or defend a claim, while protecting
the health and safety of court participants and staff. Today’s orders will rescind the
most recent such emergency order, which was released in February 2022.
The process to determine long-term rules on remote court proceedings “is expected
to take some time,” the Court noted in today’s orders. Development of any
proposed rule changes will include a chance for public comment.
