On May 26, 2020, the Tennessee Supreme Court released an Order extending Tennessee’s state of emergency and modifying the prior suspension of in-person court proceedings in all state and local courts. Some main points of the Court’s new order are:
Ban on Evictions Lifted as of June 1, 2020
The Court has ordered that the ban on evictions, ejectments, and/or other displacement from a residence are lifted effective June 1, 2020. There are some restrictions on the lifting of the ban. Consult your attorney for more information.
The Court has ordered that the suspension of jury trials shall remain in effect through Friday, July 3, 2020. Any jury trial initiated after July 3, 2020, shall strictly comply with courtroom capacity and social distancing requirements applicable at the time of the trial. Courts should continue to conduct as much business as possible by means other than in-person court proceedings. Courts are encouraged to continue and even increase the use of telephone, teleconferencing, email, video conferencing or other means that do not involve in-person contact.
Orders of Protection and Injunctions
Orders of protection and temporary injunctions that would otherwise expire during the period from Friday, March 13, 2020, through Sunday, May 31, 2020, are extended through Monday, June 15, 2020.
