The Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas held its first civil jury trials on Monday, March 8th, a year after the COVID-19 shutdown. GMR Partner, Warren Holland’s trial was suspended due to the pandemic nearly a year ago, but he was one of two trials to successfully return to the courtroom this week. The Legal Intelligencer reported, “both trials proceeded without much difficulty.”
“‘I’m not going to lie, it’s weird. It’s weird doing this with a mask on,’ Warren Holland of Goldberg, Miller & Rubin told the jury in Judge Glynnis Hill’s courtroom before making his opening…‘It’s weird seeing you the way you’re sitting, but we do appreciate your time. Never has jury duty meant more than right now.’”
