The Indiana Mass Tort Court is scheduled to resume asbestos trials on October 6, 2020. Subpoenas for potential jurors to appear for jury duty have been mailed out. On September 15, 2020, George & Farinas attorneys participated in a pre-trial planning hearing to discuss the logistics of trials to occur during this pandemic.
The jurors will be carefully screened by Court staff even before traveling to the courthouse to appear for jury duty. The Court and Parties are working together to ensure the health and safety of jurors, witnesses, and all other persons during the course of the trials.
Strict protocols will be in place for social distancing, wearing of masks, and other protective measures to do everything possible to protect everyone involved in the trials.
We look forward to being back in the courtroom again!
