Changes made following First Judicial District Court order
Helena – The Lewis and Clark County courthouse is going to see some changes and limitations in regards to in-court proceedings due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Court Order #SB-2020-14 from the First Judicial District Court, it has become increasingly difficult for parties, counsel, court, clerk of court, pretrial services, probation and parole, and detention center staff to be present in the courtroom while strictly following public health recommendations to mitigate the virus.
Pursuant to the Montana First Judicial District Local Court Rules, Parties are encouraged to file documents by email to email@example.com. Staff will follow-up with parties for payment. The filing of the Original Document is waived until May 1, 2020, pursuant to the Court Order.
