At this time, we are asking that residents needing to do business with the town please courteously do so from home, either by phone, or online. Please visit our Town Services COVID-19 web page. Many town services (including court services) can be done remotely instead of in-person. If you do not find the assistance you need on that page, please give us a call prior to coming to town hall, at 520-822-8800 (main line) or 520-344-7150 (courts), so that we may first see if there is a way to assist you without you needing to visit town hall. We thank you for your kindness and consideration for public health in your community.

The Sahuarita Municipal Court is committed to protecting the rights and welfare of all Sahuarita citizens and all visitors to the courthouse. 

Effective April 30, 2022, and in line with Arizona Supreme Court Administrative Order  2022-34 and Pima County Superior Court Administrative Order 2022-07, wearing a mask inside of the Sahuarita Municipal Court is recommended but discretionary, unless noted otherwise. Masks are mandatory where social distancing of three feet is not practicable inside of the courthouse.

However, to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses, and to safeguard the health of all, please do not visit the courthouse or court offices if you are ill, including but not limited to if you have a COVID-19 diagnosis or symptoms. Instead, contact your attorney or the court to reschedule or make alternative participation arrangements by filing a motion at sahuaritacourt@courts.az.gov or by calling 520-344-7150 and press “3” to speak with court staff. 

Please note, if your case is not set for a dispositive hearing, you may be able to participate in your hearing remotely, by telephone, by calling in at your scheduled time for your hearing at 520-445-7965. Members of the public may also call and listen in on the public hearing line but must remain muted. If social distancing requirements are met, non-parties may attend in person as space allows.

The courthouse is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., excluding federal and town holidays. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Court as above.

The Court appreciates your patience as it continues to provide the timely, fair, and efficient administration of justice under law during this health crisis.

A partir del 30 de abril de 2022, y en línea con la Orden Administrativa 2022-34 de la Corte Suprema de Arizona y la Orden Administrativa 2022-07 de la Corte Superior del Condado de Pima, se recomienda usar una máscara dentro del Tribunal Municipal de Sahuarita pero discrecionalmente, a menos que se indique lo contrario. Las máscaras son obligatorias cuando el distanciamiento social de tres pies no es practicable dentro del juzgado.

Sin embargo, para ayudar a minimizar la propagación de COVID-19 y otras enfermedades, y para salvaguardar la salud de todos,  no visite el tribunal o las oficinas de la corte si está enfermo, incluidos, entre otros, si tiene un diagnóstico o síntomas de COVID-19. En su lugar, comuníquese con su abogado o la corte para reprogramar o hacer arreglos de participación alternativos presentando una moción en sahuaritacourt@courts.az.gov o llamando al 520-344-7150 y presionando "3" para hablar con el personal de la corte. 

Tenga en cuenta que si su caso no está programado para una audiencia dispositiva, es posible que pueda participar en su audiencia de forma remota, por teléfono, llamando a la hora programada para su audiencia al 520-445-7965. Los miembros del público también pueden llamar y escuchar en la línea de audiencia pública, pero deben permanecer en silencio. Si se cumplen los requisitos de distanciamiento social, las personas que no son partes pueden asistir en persona según lo permita el espacio.

El palacio de justicia está abierto de lunes a viernes, de 8:00 a.m. a 5:00 p.m., excluyendo los días festivos federales y municipales. Si tiene preguntas o inquietudes, comuníquese con el Tribunal como se indicó anteriormente.

La Corte agradece su paciencia mientras continúa brindando la administración de justicia oportuna, justa y eficiente bajo la ley durante esta crisis de salud.
