CASPER, Wyo. (RELEASE) - The City of Casper issued the following press release Thursday:

Michael K. Davis, Chief Justice of the Wyoming Supreme Court issued an Emergency Order implementing measures to protect the health and welfare of the public and court personnel throughout Wyoming, while still permitting the essential functions to proceed in a timely manner. The Order advises all Circuit and District Courts to suspend in-person proceedings, except in specified circumstances where required by law and the constitution. The Casper Municipal Court is adopting this Order.

All cases which require court appearances or that have been scheduled for bench trial or case review for the next three weeks are being rescheduled if you wish to appear in Court. Judge Lund asks that if you do not get a phone call rescheduling your initial appearance that is set during the next three weeks you should call the Court. Judge Lund is still encouraging online, phone, and mail-in payments as much as possible. There is also a public drop mail slot where envelopes will be provided outside the court payment window. Judge Lund asks that if you make a payment at the drop slot please include on the envelope your name, docket number/charge, and a current mailing address. All payments will be processed daily and a receipt mailed to the address provided. The staff will continue diligently working, taking phone calls and answering questions.
