Midvale City Justice Court Suspends Most Hearings Until After June 1

Court closed to walk-ins but will be accessible by telephone or email

Post Date:03/23/2020 4:20 PM

To protect the public and all court participants, the Utah Judiciary has implemented their Pandemic Response Plan to bring uniformity to the operation of the courts during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Utah Supreme Court and Utah Judicial Council issued an administrative order on March 21, 2020 that, among other things, instructs district court and justice court judges to suspend all civil and criminal jury trials until after June 1. Therefore, as of March 23, 2020, the court will be closed to walk-ins but will be accessible by telephone or email. The court will continue to accept filings, by email, and will take payments over the phone. 

The following hearings will continue, via remote transmission such as telephone or video conferencing.

  • Bench warrant hearings
  • Domestic violence arraignments
  • Mission-critical functions for in-custody defendants
  • All other hearings will be postponed. We will contact parties to reschedule for a future time.
