COVID-19 Updates

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, and the Governor’s Declaration of Emergency, the Washington State Supreme Court granted local courts emergency authority. Pursuant to that authority, the Whatcom County Superior Court issued Administrative Orders on March 11 and 16, 2020 that suspended jury trials until April 24, 2020 and temporarily suspended various court rules in order to reduce court appearances and encourage social distancing.
