Georgia Supreme Court Orders Suspension of all Motions, Hearings and Trials, with the Exception of Mediations, Depositions and Other Discovery

Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Harold Melton has announced a statewide judicial emergency as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.  While most metro Atlanta courts have already announced indefinite closures other than for emergency matters, Justice Melton’s order will suspend virtually all motions, hearings and trials statewide through at least April 13th.  While mediations, depositions and other discovery may continue, the order also extended all deadlines, including discovery, through April 13th.

A copy of the Order may be found here.
