ST. JOSEPH — With a rise in COVID-19 cases being reported in Berrien County, the Berrien County Trial Court has taken a step back in a phased re-opening plan, from Phase 3 to Phase 2.

“Unfortunately, less in-person hearings can occur during Phase 2. We will be pulling back on the additional in-person dockets we had added back in for Phase 3, and will be working hard to conduct those via Zoom,” Court Administrator Carrie Smietanka-Haney said.
