No, it is not an April Fools joke. If you show up for an appearance at the Dallas Municipal Court Monday, April 1 through Wednesday, April 3, the building will be open, but court will not be in session.
The Dallas Municipal Court at 2014 Main Street will be closed because the city prosecutors are attending professional development training.
Therefore, all court appearances and jury duty scheduled on these days will be rescheduled. Persons with scheduled court or jury appearances will be notified by mail with a new court or jury date. If you do not receive a new court or jury date, please call 214-670-0109 or visit courts.dallascityhall.com.
Court Clerk staff will be available to assist attorneys and defendants with clerical functions such as filings, answering questions, taking payments, records, setting up payment plans, etc.
Defendants seeking to resolve their citation(s) without coming downtown can pay online at courts.dallascityhall.com, by mail or by phone by calling 214-670-0109. Defendants can also make full citation payments at the Dallas Marshal’s Office located at 1600 Chestnut, Dallas, TX 75226, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
