Judge resets cases over coronavirus concerns
SAN ANTONIO – Judge Gloria Saldana’s County Court 9 courtroom is normally packed on a Monday morning. “I’m restructuring my docket so that I don’t have more than 15 people in court at any one time," Saldana said. “I want to make my courtroom safe in light of everything that is going on,” Saldana said. “I was a Girl Scout, and I live to be prepared.”Misdemeanor Administrative Court Judge John Longoria validated what Saldana has done. “Our jury room gets about 500 or 600 people a day, and that could spread like wildfire it if gets here,” Longoria said Monday.
