Based on recommendations from public health authorities, the Tenth Circuit Clerk’s Office is operating on maximum telework status for social distancing purposes. 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 general order attached below, the Byron White United States Courthouse is closed to the public effective March 17, 2020. Access to the courthouse is restricted to judges, court staff, court security officers, and service providers with official business with the court. Until further notice, all filings should be made electronically or via mail or delivery service (FedEx, UPS, etc.). Questions, concerns, or requests for accommodation should be directed to the Clerk’s Office.
In addition, the requirement for parties to submit paper copies of briefs, appendices, and petitions for rehearing en banc is temporarily suspended. The paper-copy requirement will be reinstituted at a later date. At that time, parties may be required to submit paper copies of briefs, appendices and petitions for rehearing en banc filed during the period of suspension.
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.
