Municipal Court Launches Video-Conference Hearings

As the COVID-19 virus continues to pose a threat, the Court must take steps to enable normalization of Court functions while protecting both its workforce and the public it serves. Implementation of hearings via video-conference provides the means of resuming court operations in a manner that is as efficient and safe as possible. The Court will launch this new hearing process on Monday, July 6, 2020.

Members of the public with a scheduled hearing will be required to pre-register with the Court, to set a time for their video-conference hearing. A notice will be sent to defendants about 10 days in advance of their scheduled hearing date.

Defendants will be required to call 414-286-6600 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to schedule the hearing. This phone line is dedicated to answer registration calls only.

People who are unable to proceed via video-conference must still pre-register to appear in person. Safety protocols of the CDC guidelines for physical distancing will be maintained. All hearing sessions will be limited to no more than 10 people in the courtroom.

Anyone not currently scheduled for a hearing, should not call the hotline. For all other Court related information, the main information line is available: 414-286-3800.

Juvenile matters are on hold until further notice. Please note that the Court is unable to discuss juvenile matters by telephone. Written correspondence may be submitted via email at [email protected] or via U.S. mail.

SAFE DRIVING PSA

Please pay attention, look out for others and drive safely. The fine for inattentive driving is almost $200. But you can never pay the price of ending someone's life. And the life you save may be your own.

When driving, you are responsible for yourself, your car, and most importantly your passengers. They are your most important cargo. Don't let any distraction...

A yellow traffic light means Prepare to Stop. It does NOT mean Go Very Fast.

A red traffic light means STOP. Running a red light, which includes slowly driving through it, could result in a $175 fine. If you are cited twice in a year, it could result in a $213 fine.

Obeying traffic lights keeps everyone safe and is a more cost effective way to drive. Please drive safely and responsibly. The life you save may be your own.

Milwaukee’s Municipal Court judges continue to play a role within the community, outside the confines of the court.

Most recently, the efforts of Judge Phillip Chavez were recognized in the WI State Public Defender’s newsletter, thanks to his participation in the Milwaukee County Veterans Support Group’s Legal Clinic for Veterans. The event took place this past April at the Zablocki VA grounds.

According to the article, “(t)he number of veterans served and legal issues addressed were all-time highs for this annual event.”

Thank you, Judge Chavez, for continuing your great support for our Veterans!
