Wichita Municipal Court to return to session May 26

Wichita Municipal Court will return to session May 26.

The court had been closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  All previous pending cases have been assigned new court dates.

“Municipal Court staff have been working hard to ensure the courts are safe and ready for residents, staff and judges,” said Municipal Court Administrator Nathan Emmorey. “We have been contacting those with pending cases with their new dates when possible, but urge everyone unsure of when their court appearance is to go online.”

If you have a case in municipal court that has been put on hold, visit Wichita.gov/court and use the docket search tool to find your new court date.

Those making a court appearance will be required to wear a mask. Defendants will not be allowed to bring guests with them due to social distancing requirements.

New safety procedures have been implemented, such as increased cleaning processes, plastic shields and increased hand sanitizing stations.
