BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Due to the projected path of Hurricane Irma, Chief Judge John M. Harris has cancelled court proceedings in Brevard and Seminole Counties on Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12.
“With a substantial number of our employees, attorneys and jurors having evacuated, together with the uncertainty of road conditions and extent of power outages, I have made the decision to extend our court cancellation throughTuesday,” said Chief Judge Harris.
On Tuesday, September 12, initial appearances and other mandatory court proceedings will be held at the jail, beginning at 9 a.m.
The Chief Judge will preside over these proceedings in Brevard County. Administrative Judge John D. Galluzzo will preside over Seminole County proceedings.
Unless otherwise notified, court will reopen on Wednesday, September 13.
Chief Judge Harris encourages everyone to be safe.
“Just because the track of the storm appears to have turned even farther away from us, please don’t take it lightly. It will still be a very dangerous storm here and a significant event that will affect us for a long time,” said Chief Harris. “We all have friends, family and colleagues in Irma’s path. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Others will not be as fortunate as we seem to have been.”
