Dickinson County Looking At Leasing Larger Venues For Jury Selection For Upcoming Trials

Thu 9-3-2020

(Spirit Lake)-- The Dickinson County Board of Supervisors Tuesday discussed some possible alternative venues for jury selection for some upcoming trials. The need for social distancing with the pandemic and the fact that initial jury pools can consist of 100 or more people is what's driving the issue.

Court officials told the supervisors several amenities would be needed including wi-fi and internet service, among others.

Several possible sites have already been tentatively identified and county and court officials will be touring them over the next week or so and will report back to the supervisors.
