Plans are underway to resume some court proceedings across the state.

Chief Judge Janet DiFiore of the New York State Unified Court System said Monday digital technology cannot replace the face to face interactions that are essential to delivering justice in the courts.

In-person proceedings were paused back in November.

DiFiore is hoping as long as the metrics keep moving in the right direction, trials can start to begin again.
