Superior Court - View homepage

Effective September 7, 2021 the District Court Clerk’s Office (Room 106) is closed to public contact. The rise in COVID cases in the community and recent exposures to the public during District Court proceedings is causing the court to reinstitute previous measures to keep our staff and the public safe.   We are also returning to remote staffing and limiting the number of court employees in the courthouse. The use of LiveChat is highly encouraged and will nearly always result in a quicker response than email or phone.
