Supreme Court, lower courts shutting down

The Florida Supreme Court and other courts in the potential path of Hurricane Michael are planning to shut down until the storm passes.

The Supreme Court announced Monday that it and the Office of the State Courts Administrator in Tallahassee will be closed from Tuesday through Thursday.

Similarly, the Tallahassee-based 1st District Court of Appeal will be closed for the three days.

Numerous courts in Northwest Florida and Big Bend counties also will close as the hurricane nears.

Some will close Tuesday, while others will close Wednesday, according to a list on the Supreme Court website. Hurricane Michael is expected to make landfall in the region in the middle of the week.

The News Service of Florida provides journalists, lobbyists, government officials and other civic leaders with comprehensive, objective information about the activities of state government year-round.
