Justice Court and Municipal Courts
It is important to review your traffic summons or citation as it contains important information such as:
- Where you MUST appear (Municipal, Justice or Circuit court), and
- The Date, Time and Location of your court appearance.
If your summons, citation or notice state that you must appear at the Justice or a Municipal Court please contact the Justice Court or the appropriate Municipal court for information or questions regarding your case. Please be aware that circuit court clerks do not have access to Justice or Municipal court records.
