Superior Court

Posted on: February 11, 2019


At the time of this release, 5:15 p.m. on 02/11/209, Superior Court functions at the County City Building, Remann Hall (Juvenile Court) and Western State Hospital will be open during normal business hours on Tuesday the 12th.  Not all departments may be open at normal business hours, depending on driving/weather conditions, but the court will be open.  Judicial Officers understand not everyone can make their court time, so they have the intention of being flexible.

  • If you are currently in trial or scheduled for a hearing in front of a judge, contact the judicial assistant for that department.
