District Court offices, including the Probation offices at the County-City Building and the Court Resource Center at the 925 building, are projected to be open during normal business hours, unless a Court Closure Order is signed by the Presiding Judge. Judicial officers understand that not everyone can make their court time, so they have the intention of being flexible. Opening on time allows proceedings to move forward if all parties are present, in the hopes of hearing all matters scheduled that day.
If you are unable to make it to court or your probation appointment, or you will be delayed, please review the bulleted list for further clarification:
- If you are currently in trial or scheduled for a hearing in front of a judge, contact the court via Live Chat, email, fax or phone.
- For all matters involving probation, please contact the Probation Office at 253-798-7487.
- Jurors who have questions should call Jury Administration at 253-798-7782.
EMPLOYEES ONLY: District Court employees are to check the message on the district court employee information line for inclement weather updates. Staff have a two-hour grace period to report to work, but they are expected to report at their regularly scheduled start time if it is safe to do so.
