WAUKESHA — On Monday, Waukesha County Courts will resume all in-person proceedings except jury trials.

All the services will resume under a new operational plan that outlines COVID-19 safety requirements.

According to a press release, the Clerk of Court’s offices will also reopen for walk-in public service. All court filings and documents will continue to be processed over the counter, via the Wisconsin Courts’ eFiling System, U.S. mail, fax, and the county drop box located at the front doors of the Waukesha County Courthouse.

“This plan allows us to significantly increase the number of legal matters we can resolve after the COVID-19 pandemic put thousands of cases on hold,” said Judge Jennifer Dorow, Presiding Judge in Waukesha County and Chief Judge of the Third Judicial District.

Everyone in courtrooms and court-related refined spaces will be required to wear a face mask.
