DeKalb County Superior Court Chief Judge Asha F. Jackson has issued an order to declare, “the existence of a Judicial Emergency in the Stone Mountain Judicial Circuit. The nature of this emergency is the continued transmission of Coronavirus/COVID-19 throughout DeKalb County and the potential infection of those who are required to appear in our courts and interact with large groups due to jury service, including grand jury service, or other large, non-essential calendars.” The order shall be held for thirty (30) days from the date of the order and is included in this press release.
At this time, DeKalb County Clerk of Superior Court will continue to operate Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM. If there is a need to visit the Clerk’s Office, be assured cleaning and sanitation procedures have significantly increased.
