Expanding upon previously announced changes in court operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, King County District Court has further reduced operations at its nine courthouse locations.

Effective March 23 through April 27, or further order of the court, the following King County District Court clerk’s offices will have reduced service hours, for limited customer service, staff permitting. These locations will only be open between 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., Monday through Friday for emergency situations concerning physical harm to persons or property:

Bellevue – 1309 114th Ave. SE, Suite 100

Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent – 401 4th Ave. N.

Seattle – King County Courthouse in Seattle, 516 Third Avenue, Room E-327

The following King County District Court locations will remain closed until at least April 27 or further order of the court:

“The King County District Court’s 25 courtrooms collectively handle more than 100,000 matters each year for both the county and the cities that contract with us for court services,” Donna Tucker, King County District Court chief presiding judge, said in a press release. “Because so many people typically come and go through our courthouses every day, it was crucial that we drastically curtail when and where we are open to keep our employees and the public safe during the pandemic.”
