Public Notice
In the event that Congress does not pass an appropriations bill to continue funding the federal government beyond February 9, 2018, the federal judiciary will use other funds, such as fees collected, to enable federal courts to remain open for approximately three weeks through March 1, 2018. 
During that time, scheduled hearings will be held as usual, filings will be accepted, hours of operation, availability of systems, and other services will continue as normal. In the event circumstances change, the Court will provide notice of any changes to scheduled hearings and service levels.
