From Monday July 18 through Thursday July 22, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court will have regular houses but parking and access have been changed.

According to a court spokesman, the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court will be open during regular hours -- 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. -- the week of the Republican National Convention.

The only entrance open to the public during the week of the RNC will be the Lakeside Avenue entrance.

He added that the "...RNC poses significant logistical challenges to jurors, members of the public, those who do business with the court, and those who work in the court. As such, court dockets will be limited to critical matters. Trials and hearings are not scheduled for that week. Court staffing will be maintained at minimal levels."

He says the court will handle: felony arraignments, review of bonds, walk-in Petitions for Ex Parte Civil Protection Orders, Writs, Motions for Temporary Restraining Orders and other matters of immediate concern. Most people on Probation will be asked to report the week of July 25. If you are under supervision by the Court's Adult Probation Department and have any questions about your reporting requirements, please contact your probation officer.

Attorneys and litigants are advised that accessibility to the Justice Center may be restricted, and parking in the Huntington Park Garage and other lots may be limited.
