Courts' Public Service Hours of Operation

All state courts and state court offices close each calendar year for certain holidays:

  • 9 holidays defined by state law
  • Any other day the Governor appoints as a holiday

State law provides that when a holiday falls on Saturday, the legal holiday (the day we close) is the Friday before. When a holiday falls on Sunday, the legal holiday is the following Monday. The state court system closes for each legal holiday set by state law.
