TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)-Due to the concern of community spread of COVID-19 over the holidays and following guidance from the Tippecanoe County Health Department, the Tippecanoe County courts will be conducting all hearings remotely during the first full week of January 2021.
All initial hearings scheduled for the week of January 4 in the new Tippecanoe Superior Court No. 7 will be rescheduled, and Superior Court No. 7 will issue orders with new dates. Other courts may cancel some hearings during high-volume times if they cannot be easily converted to remote hearings. Parties should contact their attorney if represented, or court staff if unrepresented, for instructions. Superior Court No. 7 will start accepting telephone calls on January 4, 2021, but new court dates will not be immediately available.
