Jury Trials in Idaho Prevented Amid Rising COVID-19 Cases

October 27, 2020

BURLEY, Idaho — Most courts in south-central Idaho have been prevented from holding jury trials because of high weekly confirmed coronavirus case numbers following an order that places virus case thresholds on when trials can resume.

The Times-News reports that the Idaho Supreme Court issued the order last month allowing jury trials to start again when their counties meet the new case threshold level. The state high court previously suspended all trials in March.

Camas County is the only county that has low enough numbers to hold jury trials.

Trial court administrator Shelli Tubbs says there has only been one in-person trial so far. All other hearings were conducted online.

According to a tally by Johns Hopkins University, Idaho has had at least 59,344 confirmed coronavirus cases since the pandemic began, including 573 deaths. On Sunday, 650 new cases were reported.
