10/13/2020: The Jefferson, KY court reopened the week of 9/28/2020 and has been open with restrictions ever since. Please be aware that there are *severe* delays in the county due to extremely limited capacity. Our researchers are still only able to access the court via appointment because of COVID precautions. These appointments are only once or twice a week and are for no longer than 2 hours. In addition, there are only two PATs available to use in court. The courts are not sharing any estimate on when they think the restrictions will be lifted and our researchers have not yet had any breakthroughs on how to increase their capacity within the courts. Please continue to expect severe delays on any pending Jefferson, KY searches.
