Jury Trials Suspended Again in Adair County

Due to high transmission of COVID-19 jury trials in some northeast Missouri counties are suspended. Presiding 2nd Circuit Judge Russell Steele made the decision last week that impacts trials in Adair, Knox and Lewis counties. Jury trials had just begun again in Adair County in June after being suspended for most of 2020 due to the pandemic. It’s likely jury trials won’t resume until September.
