Default Goverment Shutdown-does it affect court dates

Does anyone know if the federal shutdown happens, would it affect the inmates court dates and sentencing dates??? How would this affect someone who is currently incarcerated but not sentenced and should be starting trial within the next month?

The only thing I have heard is that it may slow the processing of inmates so it will take longer for them to get transfered and settled! In TX we are having our own budget issues so plenty of changes around here within the facilites but as far as court dates and such I would guess that they would not be affected...maybe someone else will come along with more insight!

I think it depends how long it continues. At some point, the court-appointed lawyers aren't going to work for free.

No, it will not impact court dates. Civil cases may get shuffled and reset, but criminal cases, where people's liberty will be at risk, will continue to move through the channels. Criminal court staff, federal PD's AUSA's, and CJA panel attorneys will be considered essential personnel and will be required to work through the shutdown.

That's not exactly what i am reading. i am hearing there is enough money for 2 weeks operations. And that DOJ hasn't clarified the availability of attorneys. That said, everyone i know is expecting to be in court next week until we hear differently.

The local news here just reported that the Federal Court has enough funds to operate for 10 days.
