Important Notice

The courthouse has been closed by order of the County Judge. We are currently under orders to work remotely, therefore we are not able to accept new cases until the order is lifted.

Given the published uncertainty of the extent of the spread of the COVID-19 virus during this pandemic, it is not reasonable or prudent to require jurors, litigants, witnesses, peace officers, attorneys, or the court personnel to be additionally exposed to the potential risk of contamination and infection, therefore all scheduled hearings for this court are hereby suspended until further notice.
