Jury trials to resume in some Kansas counties

Joplin Area Coronavirus

KANSAS — New rules mean jury trials can restart for several Southeast Kansas counties. The Kansas Supreme Court has approved a covid-19 plan for the 31st judicial district.

That covers legal proceedings in Allen, Neosho, Wilson, and Woodson Counties. Social distancing is a factor, along with alternate sites for some trials.

The plan also addresses the use of personal protective equipment and providing an audio stream of most proceedings through Zoom and YouTube.
