The United States District and Bankruptcy Courts for the District of Idaho announce that the federal courthouses in Idaho will be closed through April 15 in compliance with Governor Little’s “stay-in-place” order.

Only essential hearings will be held during this time of closure. Any hearing deemed essential by the presiding judge will be conducted with no more than 10 people physically present in the courtroom, and only persons specifically permitted by the presiding judge will be allowed to participate.

Persons who are not participants to a hearing, but who are interested in following a hearing, may listen to a proceeding by using a call-in telephone number that will be listed on the judge’s calendar, accessible on the court website:
