Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Tenth Circuit Clerk’s Office continues to operate on maximum telework status. Responses to phone messages may be delayed, and we strongly encourage all inquiries to be submitted via email. Team descriptions and their contact information can be found under the Contact Us section of the website.
Pursuant to the June 12, 2020 general order attached below, on June 15, 2020 the Byron White United States Courthouse will reopen only to members of the public who have pending business with the court (e.g., a case- or other business-related need to enter the courthouse). Unless the court orders otherwise, the pending-business restriction will expire on July 1, 2020, and the courthouse will reopen to the general public at that time. Until further notice, anyone who wishes to enter the courthouse must comply with the building-access restrictions set forth in the Byron White Reopening Protocol attached below. Individuals who refuse to comply will be denied access to the courthouse.
Effective July 1, 2020, the requirement for parties to submit paper copies of briefs, appendices, and petitions for rehearing en banc will be reinstated. Paper copies will be required for all briefs, appendices, and petitions for rehearing en banc filed on or after July 1, 2020. Paper copies of briefs and appendices filed from March 17, 2020 through June 30, 2020 may be required via separate orders issued in individual cases. Counsel and parties who wish to file documents or submit paper copies in person are strongly encouraged to use the Clerk’s Office drop box located just inside the front door of the courthouse. Clerk's Office drop box procedures are attached below.
As we expect the court's response to the COVID-19 pandemic to remain fluid, all counsel and parties are encouraged to check this website frequently for further updates to the court's operational response.
