Jury trials in Idaho delayed until 2021 amid rising COVID-19 cases

BOISE, Idaho — Due to the continued rise in COVID-19 cases across the state, jury trials in Idaho have been put on hold until Jan. 4, 2021.


The Idaho Supreme Court issued this latest order on Monday. It applies to both criminal and civil cases.


On Sept. 10, the state high court issued an order allowing jury trials to start again when their counties met the new case threshold.
