Minimising the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19)
The Court is carefully monitoring the Commonwealth and State Governments' announcements and health advice relating to coronavirus (COVID-19).
In an endeavour to contain its effects and keep the Court operational as much as possible, parties in Classes 1, 2 (excluding tree dispute applications), 3, 4 and 8 are encouraged to use Online Registry and Online Court. Both Online Court and Online Registry will be operating 24 hours a day as normal and parties should avail themselves of these resources as much as possible.
Applications, appeals, notice of motion and subpoenas can continue to be filed by Online Registry. Online Court can be used to seek directions (including listing matters for conciliation conferences, mediations and hearings) and also access orders for subpoenas and notices to produce.
Parties in Class 2 tree dispute applications and Class 5, 6 and 7 criminal proceedings and appeals are encouraged to continue to seek directions and also access orders for subpoenas and notices to produce using the firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
The Court also has telephone link services available and encourages the parties to seek to have matters listed for directions or mention by telephone if they would prefer.
The Court will continue to run a daily Registrar's list and the Friday Judge lists, however these small measures will minimise the need for parties to come to Court in the near future.
