The Alabama Supreme Court lifted restrictions on in-person court hearings in an order.

The order was released by the state Supreme Court Wednesday after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey loosened restrictions in her safer at home order. The state Supreme Court order allowed in-person hearings to resume May 15 and continue through Aug. 15 at the authority of presiding judges.
