Yesterday the Connecticut Judicial Department announced the additional steps they will be taking toward more fully reopening the state courthouses.

On June 8 the Torrington, Middletown and Rockville courts will open. These three courts will join the 6 courthouses that are currently open and conducting priority one business.

On June 29 the courthouses in Danbury, Milford, Stamford and Danielson will open.
