Updated Operational Status

as of March 12, 2021

Due to public health concerns associated with the COVID-19 virus, the Court continues to hear oral arguments via videoconference, a practice that will continue until further notice. Oral arguments can be heard live on the Court’s YouTube channel, and recordings of all oral arguments are also posted to our website and YouTube channel.

With the exception of the special provisions being made for videoconferenced oral arguments, the Court is continuing normal operations with a largely remote workforce via established continuity of operations (COOP) protocols. Court facilities at 625 Indiana Avenue, N.W. in Washington, D.C. remain closed to the public.

The Court is operating with its fully authorized strength of nine active judges, and has four senior judges serving in recall status.

Questions should be directed to the Clerk of the Court (gblock@uscourts.cavc.gov).
