Monroe County Circuit Court Returns To Virtual Hearings

Missouri’s 10th Judicial Circuit Judge Rachel Bringer Shepherd is switching Monroe County Court proceedings to virtual hearings.

The change is due to a rise in COVID-19 cases in both courthouse staff and community members using the courthouse.

Bringer put the change into effect July 1st and says it will remain in effect for a couple of weeks while they continue to monitor the situation.

Cases that require in-person hearings will be done with minimal attendance.
