Here’s everything we know about the Philly courts website shutdown

The site is still out, but there have been some updates in the last month that allow partial access for those of us who hate paper filing.

It’s been a month since we first heard about the outage of the Philadelphia courts website,

ICYMI: The city’s digital court systems were shut down on May 21 as a preventative measure after a virus was detected on multiple computers in the First Judicial District.

This has affected pretty much everyone involved in the local judicial system, from people tweeting to ask about jury duty to real estate agents unable to close on deals.

Though the website still isn’t completely up and running (and officials are pretty unclear about when that will happen again), there have been some updates since that fateful day in May. Here’s a recap of everything we know so far:
