Traffic Court in the Age of Covid and Beyond - The Genie's Not Going Back Into the Bottle

Featuring Hon. Ronald Ramsey, Decatur, GA

Hosted by the Hon. Richard Ginkowski

Though their courtrooms are more than 750 miles apart Judges Richard Ginkowski and Ronald Ramsey both preside over suburban traffic court dockets and on March 16, 2020, both switched gears to continue court operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Both took court hearings into cyberspace and set up online portals where many people could take care of their cases without even making an appearance.  Now with the pandemic hopefully winding down Judges Ramsey and Ginkowski share their experiences and foretell that the virtual court operations necessitated during the pandemic is a genie that's not going back into the bottle.
