“The King County District Court’s 25 courtrooms collectively handle more than 100,000 matters each year for both the county and the cities that contract with us for court services,” Donna Tucker, King County District Court chief presiding judge, said in a press release. “Because so many people typically come and go through our courthouses every day, it was crucial that we drastically curtail when and where we are open to keep our employees and the public safe during the pandemic.”
