Public Notice Regarding Courthouse Closures

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, August 06, 2014
The Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara operates courthouses in Morgan Hill and Palo Alto. This is to inform the public of the Superior Court’s decision to close the Civil, Small Claims and Traffic courts in Morgan Hill and Palo Alto until further notice. The closure will go into effect October 6, 2014. 

Civil, Small Claims and Traffic cases scheduled to be heard in Morgan Hill and Palo Alto Courthouses will be scheduled for court appearances in the following new locations: 
Morgan Hill Courthouse New Locations
Civil and Small Claims  → Downtown Courthouse 
191 North First Street 
San Jose, California 

 Traffic → Santa Clara Courthouse 
1095 Homestead Road 
Santa Clara, California 

Palo Alto Courthouse
Small ClaimsDowntown Courthouse
191 North First Street
San Jose, California

Traffic → Santa Clara Courthouse
1095 Homestead Road
Santa Clara, California

The Court finds the above actions are necessary due to the significant and continuing cuts to the State Judicial Branch Budget. Since 2009, state funding for the judicial branch has been significantly reduced, with those reductions impacting the budgets of individual superior courts. The limited amount of funding restored in FY 2014-15 does not make it fiscally feasible to keep these courts open. 

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. If you would like to submit comments about the proposed reductions, please send them to: 
David H. Yamasaki, Court Executive Officer, 191 North First Street, San Jose, California 95113 by October 6, 2014.
