It's true the storm will have passed us by 6 today but no matter -- everyone now has another day to kill:
During inclement weather periods, the safety of jurors, the public and Court personnel is always a priority. In the event of hazardous weather conditions, including hurricanes and tropical storms, the policy of the Southern District of Florida is to close federal courthouses when the local public schools within a particular county close. In light of the announced closures of public schools in Monroe, Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, the federal courthouses in Key West, Miami and Fort Lauderdale will be closed on Monday, August 27, 2012. Those courthouses will reopen when public schools in those counties reopen or until further order of Chief United States District Judge Federico A. Moreno.

In the event of an emergency, information about the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida can be obtained from the following sources:
- The Court's website:
- Recorded telephone messages at each courthouse
- Broadcast messages sent to CM/ECF e-filers
- Television announcements

Please note that if the Court's website is unavailable, the Administrative Office of the U. S. Courts will post emergency messages on behalf of the Court on its website:
 Stay safe and dry everyone!


  1. Hey freaks, stay safe and if you want to stay dry, stop watching those movies. You know the ones.

  2. My faith in humanity is slowly being restored. Almost as many people were walking out of the Publix liquor store this morning as were walking out of the regular grocery store.

  3. Rumpole had better coverage. And Dairy of the Chief Judge should be made into a movie of the week.

  4. So what happens to those who have court today?
