Most federal courts in states hit by Hurricane Sandy have reopened, but power failures continue to shut down four courts in Manhattan: the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the New York Southern District Court, the New York Southern Bankruptcy court, and the U.S. Court of International Trade. A district courthouse in Trenton, New Jersey, also remained without power.

Jurors, litigants, lawyers, and others should check their local court's website for closure details or use the court locator to find court websites.
