Justice Court


COVID-19 Special Notice

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 for Court Operations During Pandemic on December 30, 2020 that, among other things, instructs district court and justice court judges to suspend all civil and criminal jury trials until further notice, and based on current COVID-19 conditions in Wasatch County. 

Therefore, the court will be closed to in-person hearings. Certain hearings may still take place remotely or telephonically. Remote hearings will be held via Cisco WebEx.  For instructions on how to use the Cisco WebEx Meetings Remote software, click here.

The court will continue to accept filings, by email, and will take payments over the phone or online. Please view the Administrative Order for details.

People who choose to represent themselves in court are called "pro-se" or "self-represented litigants." A person should think carefully before deciding to represent himself or herself. The process takes time, patience and can be confusing. Pro-se parties are expected to know the same rules that attorneys do.

The justice court provides some resources, but court staff cannot provide legal advice. The staff can provide general information about court rules, procedures and schedules.
