COVID-19 Court Closures & Guidance

March 26, 2020

COVID-19 has forced the closure of many businesses throughout the country, and the courthouses where DGS clients frequently litigate are subject to these same pressures. The limitations and closures of courts in Colorado and elsewhere vary widely from state to state and even within each state. DGS attorneys continue to monitor these closures and limitations. Please contact David Holman if you would like DGS to monitor additional states or courts.
