As of March 18, 2020 and until further notice, there are no in-person Superior Court and Tax Court proceedings (except for extremely limited emergent matters and certain ongoing trials). As many matters as possible (including case management conferences, motions, and hearings) will be handled by telephone or video conference.

This is part of the Judiciary’s social distancing efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus. Contact the court if you have questions about a scheduled hearing, motion, conference, or other matter.

Court offices also are closed for in-person submissions. Filings may be submitted electronically or by mail or dropped off at a designated drop-box. Court-ordered payments may be sent by mail or made electronically.

Emergent applications may be made in several ways. If you have an emergency and need to apply to the court, call the court. Through March 27, all Landlord/Tenant calendars and all Municipal Court sessions are postponed and a new date will be provided to you.

Summoned jurors should check their reporting instructions on the jury reporting page.

Municipal Court: Check with your local municipal court for closing information.
