Court Closures

Court closures and new hearing processes due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Today, the Family Court and Federal Circuit court of Australia’s Lionel Bowen Building in Sydney have been shut down due to the case of coronavirus. It is said that the Court will be closed for 24 hours from today. NSW, Victoria and Queensland and South Australia have announced all new jury trials will be cancelled as of next week.

In other developments the Federal Court – which handles everything from defamation trials to immigration appeals – announced on Monday it would begin significantly increasing virtual court hearings, including dealing with all pre-trial hearings over the phone.
