King County Superior Court
Per Order of the Superior Court, a judicial officer may require masking / facial covering in their courtroom, in their discretion, based on particularized findings related to the judicial officer, staff, parties, case, and/or public health circumstances and issues. (See Emergency Order #37.) Any person, other than a witness while testifying, may still chose to wear a mask.
Letter to our community (June 8, 2020) from the Honorable James E. Rogers, Presiding Judge, King County Superior Court, on behalf of the judges, commissioners and staff of the King County Superior Court.
