Dallas Municipal Court rescheduled hearings, trials and jury duty postponed


All trials and jury duty across the state have been postponed due to a Texas Supreme Court order. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the order stopped jury proceedings that include jury selection or trials prior to Oct. 1.

In keeping with this order, the Dallas Municipal Court, located at 2014 Main St., will be closed for all court hearings, including walk-in court, Aug. 19 through Sept. 15. The closure includes criminal and civil hearings such as pre-trial hearings, contested hearings, show cause hearings, etc. Anyone with a hearing scheduled during this timeframe will be notified by mail with a new date and time to appear.

The Municipal Court is preparing to conduct virtual trials when court resumes.
