The Flagstaff Justice Court remains open for business.  However, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic and corresponding public health emergency, all courts in Arizona have been asked to minimize the numbers of people physically entering any courthouse wherever possible. This effort is meant to not only protect the health and safety of all litigants, staff, stakeholders, and the judiciary itself, but also to ensure that the judicial branch of government can continue to function and carry out its duties.  As we are limiting public access to the courthouse during this time, please contact the court via the court website or call the court at (928) 679-7650 if you have any requests or questions regarding a pending case or matter before the court.
