NOTICE REGARDING CoVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Ely Justice Court remains open. Based upon recommendations to practice “social distancing” in an effort to “flatten the curve”, in light of concerns regarding CoVID-19 (coronavirus), however, Ely Justice Court will not, except in extraordinary circumstances, be available for in person assistance. Further, the Court has found it reasonable to postpone and reschedule certain hearings. The Court will continue to process payments and filings, properly submitted to the Court.
