Courts to Remain Open Through January 18

The Federal judiciary has announced that they will remain fully open through at least January 18th, pushing the date at which they will run out of money due to the shutdown back a week from their earlier estimates.  Once their existing funds dry up, the courts should remain open using limited funds provide by the Antideficiency Act, with each court making its own determination on how to handle the reduced funding status.  As yet, the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts has not announced their plan, should the shutdown continue through next Friday.
