2015 - 0rder Number 20
ST. LOUIS COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT
The Friday after Thanksgiving is a St. Louis County holiday. Further, the Supreme Court of Missouri has authorized the closing on the day after Thanksgiving. Essential County services will not be available to the Court on Friday, November 27, 2015. Therefore, the 21st Judicial Circuit will be closed on November 27, 2015, the day following Thanksgiving, and that day shall be a legal holiday. See: Heinen v. Healthline Management, Inc., 982 S.S.2d 244 (Mo. 1988). Court Operating Rule 12.2(b)
SO ORDERED :
Maura B. McShane
FOLLOWING NORMAL HOURS OF OPERATION
If the St. Louis County Circuit Court determines that it is necessary to close or have a delayed opening time, for an unexpected or weather related reason, that information will be posted on this page.
In addition there may be announcements via both radio stations and television channels. However it is extremely important to make sure the announcements refer to
ST. LOUIS COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT.
The Court does not always follow the St. Louis County emergency schedule and it is easy to confuse the St. Louis City Circuit Court announcement with the St. Louis County Circuit Court announcement.
If the Court is closed for an extended period of time, please revisit this web page for further instructions concerning the rescheduling of missed trials and hearings.
