As the coronavirus continues to spread in Idaho, the Idaho Supreme Court has extended its delay of criminal jury trials into September, and pushed back all civil jury trials into December.

The order, issued Friday, means no criminal jury trials can take place before Sept. 14, and no civil jury trials can take place before Dec. 1, “due to the continuing rise in positive COVID-19 cases throughout Idaho,” according to the order.
