“We continue to work with local officials and we have arranged with the Supreme Court to provide coverage for her cases. We will continue to monitor the judge’s daily progress and in the meantime, we have confirmed that the judge has had no contact with any employee in the courthouse. All employees are safe and all members of the public are safe to enter the building. The courthouse continues with its daily operations.” concluded Corrigall Jones.
