Superior Court

Posted on: January 13, 2020


Superior Court functions at the County City Building, Remann Hall (Juvenile Court) and Western State Hospital will be operational during normal business hours.

Pierce County Superior Court takes the safety of county employees and court participants very seriously.  Areas in east Pierce County may have been impacted by this morning’s winter storm.  If you feel you cannot make it at your scheduled court time due to the storm, whether you are an attorney, defendant, witness, litigant, etc., you must call the court, using the contact information listed below:

  • If you are currently in trial or scheduled for a hearing in front of a judge, contact the judicial assistant for that department. 
  • If you have a hearing set before the Commissioners, please contact the Commissioner Services Department at (253)798-6697.
  • For all other criminal matters, contact Criminal Administration at (253)798-2988. 
  • For all matters at Remann Hall, please contact Juvenile Court Administration at (253)798-7900.

  • Jurors not assigned a department should call Jury Administration at (253)798-7782 and follow the instructions on the recording. 
  • Jurors assigned to a department should call the number provided by the judicial assistant.

A list of judicial assistant phone numbers can be found here.

If court is expected to close early, which happened several times during the 2019 snow event, that notice will be posted on our website and social media sites, followed by a Court Closure Order later in the day.
