State-ordered court employee furloughs continue this week

April 15, 2010


Most Douglas County District Court employees will be on a state-mandated furloughs again Friday.

It will be the second of four scheduled furloughs for courts in the state, due to the state’s budget crisis.

Judges will still report to work and conduct essential hearings, such as first appearances for defendants in criminal cases and juvenile detention hearings. But the district court clerk’s office will be closed.

The court trustees office will be open to accept child support payments and handle emergency matters, said court administrator Linda Koester-Vogelsang.

The courts also will be closed two upcoming Fridays, April 23 and May 7.
