AN ACT CONCERNING COURT OPERATIONS.


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill makes various changes to court procedures which do not result in a fiscal impact. Among the changes, it allows judicial marshals to serve a copy of a capias order. Current law allows judicial marshals to only serve the original order. In addition, the bill specifies that the fee for civil protection orders be waived. Legislation for civil protection orders became in effect on January 1, 2015 and it has been the current practice of the Judicial Department to not charge the fee for a request for a civil protection order, as is the case under current law for civil restraining orders.
