Detainers, Bail Hearings, and PFAs

Detainers, bail hearings, and other emergency filings are still being processed and argued in Pennsylvania courts despite the precautions put in place surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

President Judges in judicial districts operating under a declaration of judicial emergency shall arrange for the provision of essential judicial services, including, by way of example, arraignments and bail establishment hearings, hearings on detainers, protection from abuse act proceedings, where absent such proceedings there would be a threat of domestic violence, and/or injunction proceedings, where absent such proceedings there would be the threat of irreparable harm.
