    Ohio Court Tracker: The Impact of COVID-19

    The disruptions linked to the COVID-19 pandemic are increasingly impacting Ohio courts. On March 18, 2020, Ohio Attorney General David Yost issued an opinion advising that Ohio “courts may suspend jury trials to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, and they may do so consistent with state and federal speedy-trial obligations.” At both the federal and state levels, courts have begun to take actions impacting pending cases.

    With how fast things are changing, it has proven difficult to track what each court is doing. The goal of the "Ohio Court Tracker" is to pull all of that information into one place in order to allow attorneys, judges, court staff and the general public to quickly identify how all 88 Ohio counties are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Simply scroll over the dot(s) in each county to find a link to the court’s most recent order, a brief summary of the order and contact information for the court. 

    This tracker was last updated on June 1, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. Please be sure to contact the relevant court or clerk of courts prior to any judicial deadline to ensure that the information found here has not changed.
