(WEHT) — The Indiana Supreme Court ordered new operational measures in response to COVID-19 Monday. 

Governor Eric Holcomb issued executive orders implementing statewide restrictions on travel and business operations as well as closing state government offices, including the Indiana Statehouse and Government Center campuses, to the general public.

“This emergency will impede litigants’ and courts’ ability to comply with statutory deadlines and rules of procedure,” according to an order signed by Chief Justice Loretta Rush.

All appellate filings must be made electronically or by mail unless specific authorization is granted. The Supreme Court will also postpone its April oral arguments.
