MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Montgomery County jury trials will not begin in September as court officials had hoped.

The COVID-19 pandemic is prompting jury trial suspensions until further notice.

The Alabama Supreme Court had previously designated the first jury trial week to begin Sept. 14 following an order issued as the pandemic spread to the state in March.

Despite Montgomery’s cancellation, jury summons are already going out in other circuits.
