Dallas Municipal Court reschedules hearings, trials, jury duty

Dallas, Texas - The City of Dallas Municipal Court, located at 2014 Main Street will be closed for all court hearings, including walk-in court, Wednesday, August 19, through Tuesday, September 15. The closure includes criminal and civil hearings such as pre-trial hearings, contested hearings, show cause hearings, etc. If you have a hearing scheduled during this timeframe, you will be notified by mail with a new date and time to appear.

Trials and jury duty are postponed due to a Texas Supreme Court order stating that no jury proceedings, including jury selection or trials are allowed prior to October 1, 2020 due to COVID-19. Persons with trials or jury duty appearances will be notified by mail with a new date and time.

Dallas Municipal Court is preparing to go 100% virtual when courts resume back open.
