Short Update: Socially-distanced jury trial at UK Court "went like clockwork"

FT Admin - June 3, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Remote Justice, Access to a lawyer

One of the first socially-distanced jury trials took place at Warwick Crown Court last week. The three-day assault case was one of the first criminal trials to re-commence after the easing of lockdown. It was reported that one-way systems were employed in court buildings, hand sanitiser was made available and juror arrival times were staggered. Additional safety measures did not appear to delay the proceedings, which ran according to the case's pre-coronavirus timetable.
