All Austin Municipal Court locations are closed, with the expectation that they will reopen on March 30. According to the city’s website, “The decision is made in an effort limit the number of individuals gathering in a confined space to reduce the risks to public health.” However, people can still contact the court through phone and email to get information and, potentially, handle their cases. “All individuals are encouraged to call or email the Court in lieu of making personal appearances to take care of their court business. This includes requesting civil parking hearings by email.” As of now, all court dockets are cancelled, with cases to be rescheduled after May 8; notices of new court dates will be mailed. In addition, all due dates are now extended until May 8.
