As of Monday, March 30, 2020, in Ada County, all necessary court proceedings will be conducted by video or telephone. If it is not possible to do so, and the matter is deemed an emergency, a hearing may be conducted in the courthouse.
This temporary measure is to protect the public from exposure to COVID-19.
Even though court proceedings will largely be conducted by video/telephone beginning March 30, 2020, the public should know that they will still be permitted to file documents and pleadings at the courthouse. Citizens still have access to the court. Filings can still occur outside the building on the east side of the Ada County Courthouse.
In addition, the courthouse remains accessible by phone and email.
