Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile announced all Traffic and Non-Traffic Infraction matters, scheduled for appearance in any Clerk’s Office from August 22 through October 14, 2020, will be continued for 90 days.
“As the pandemic continues to impact our communities, the Court is making every effort to help those who may have been negatively affected during this public health and economic crisis,” Presiding Judge Brazile said. “We want to give people more time to take care of their tickets during this unprecedented crisis.”
People do not need to contact the Clerk’s Office to take advantage of this relief. Notification of new court dates will be mailed. Due to social distancing protocols, DO NOT come to the courthouse for any in-person services without a prescheduled appointment. To schedule an appointment, telephone the Call Center (see below).
Traffic Infraction defendants who have suspended driver’s licenses due to unpaid tickets can now call the Court to set a future hearing date and immediately have the Court request a release of their Driver’s License Hold from the DMV. Defendants should be aware that COVID-19 has affected the DMV’s ability to process these requests, so there may be some delays in lifting the holds.
