Procedure for Emergency or Weather-Related Cancellation of Court

In the event that severe weather conditions or other emergency circumstances require consideration of closing the Supreme Judicial Court, the Executive Director, in consultation with the Chief Justice will determine whether a closing is indicated.

In making the decision regarding closing, any announcements by the Governor relative to the declaration of a state of emergency will be taken into account.  Such a declaration does not automatically lead to court closing.  In the event that the Governor declares a state of emergency pursuant to the Civil Defense Act, the courts must close.

Once a decision is made regarding closing the Supreme Judicial Court, a general announcement will be provided on 617-557-1000. For more information about the court closure policy and additional contact numbers to call to find out if court is closed, click here.
