City Court In-Person Appearances Resume May 11, 2020

Posted: 05/08/2020
Knoxville City Court - closed earlier this spring, along with state courts, as a safety precaution to slow the spread of COVID-19 - will be back in session next week.

In-person court appearances begin the week of Monday, May 11, 2020.

City Court office hours are 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and reopening at 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

City Court is in session starting at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as at 9 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
 
City Court will adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's physical-distancing protocols, both inside and outside of the courtroom. 

Only 10 persons (not counting the judge, staff and officers) will be allowed in the courtroom at a time, and only those with scheduled court dates, attorneys and witnesses will be allowed inside the Safety Building. Temperature tests will be conducted.

If you're scheduled to be in court, please remember to bring and wear a cloth facial covering.
