Business As Usual for U.S. District Court for the Western District

Chief Judge Glen E. Conrad has issued the following regarding the pending federal budget cuts:

The United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia has formulated plans in anticipation of various contingencies associated with the national budget impasse in the federal government. At this time, it does not appear that the President and Congress will reach a solution in time to avoid spending cuts going into effect. On behalf of our court, I write to advise you that the court does not anticipate any closures, reductions in staff, or reductions in services in the foreseeable future. Court proceedings will take place as scheduled, and the clerk's office will maintain its current operating hours and public services. Should our projected funding levels change, it may be necessary to make appropriate adjustments in levels of service at a later time.
