Starting Wednesday, Alabama district and circuit court offices will be closed.

Alabama chief justice roy moore says the move will save the state some desperately-needed money.

Alabama chief justice roy moore says these closures are a result of underfunding to the state's court system

District and Circuit Court offices across the state will be closed to the public on Wednesdays but not to employees, they will still have to come to work.

Moore said that clerks have said in the past that they need more time to do administrative work, and closing one day a week will let them do that.

There will be drop boxes in the clerks' offices for time sensitive filings.

Despite the Wednesday closing, judicial emergencies, like arrest warrants, will be dealt with as well.

There is no timeline for how long these Wednesday court office closures will continue.
