U. S. Supreme Court to continue virtual cases

-

WASHINGTON—

The Supreme Court said Wednesday it will continue to hear arguments by telephone through at least January because of the coronaviru­s pandemic.

The court’s announceme­nt extended telephone arguments by a month.

“The Court will continue to closely monitor public health guidance in determinin­g plans for the February argument session,” the court said in a statement.

The justices last met in person to hear arguments in February of this year, but they closed the courthouse to the public in March because of the public health crisis and postponed arguments in March and April.
