Maine Trial Courts Rescind Previously Issued Pandemic Management Order

Date: 7/13/2021

The Maine Judicial Branch announced today that the chiefs of Maine's trial courts have issued a Post Pandemic Management Order-TC-1 (PPMO-TC-1) rescinding Pandemic Management Order-TC-1, originally issued March 30, 2020 and revised most recently on February 17, 2021. The earlier PMO-TC-1 provided for certain changes in court procedures in response to the public health emergency posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

PPMO-TC-1 issued today states that after closely following the Maine and U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the trial court chiefs have determined that the earlier emergency PMO-TC-1 is no longer necessary to address public health concerns and is therefore rescinded.

Maine trial courts comprise 29 District Courts and 17 Superior Courts throughout the state.

All PPMOs and Pandemic Management Orders of the Maine Supreme Court may be found on the Judicial Branch's Maine Courts Response to COVID-19 webpage.
