Court Administration

Kevin O’Hearn  –  Court Administrator

 

In light of concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus, President Judge Charles H. Saylor has authorized the following actions to safeguard court and court-related personnel and members of the public against unreasonable health risks while maintaining accessibility to the courts:
  1. All individuals entering the courthouse shall wear masks;
  2. Proper social distancing is required at all times;
  3. Hearings and meetings should be scheduled via video when at all possible;
  4. When video is not possible, court events and meetings will be held with limited in-person participants as practical;
  5. Inmates will not be transported from the Northumberland County Jail for court proceedings.  Incarcerated defendants will participate in court proceedings by video conference;
  6. All Magisterial District Justices have been asked to implement similar strategies to minimize public exposure. Members of the public who have matters scheduled before a MDJ should contact the MDJ office for further direction and guidance.  Those individuals having to make payments to an MDJ are encouraged to make payments online via https://ujsportal.pacourts.us/PayOnline.aspx or via U.S. mail.
