If you have to go to court in Gwinnett on a traffic ticket, you won’t have to take time off work to do so beginning next month. Gwinnett County government announced that to better accommodate residents’ schedules, Gwinnett Recorder’s Court will offer evening court sessions starting in March.
The nighttime sessions will be held at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center once a month at 6:00 pm on the third Thursday of each month beginning March 26. The sessions will be limited to minor traffic infractions. The number of sessions and the docket could expand depending on community response.
Recorder’s Court currently holds sessions weekday mornings and afternoons, but night court will enable residents to attend court after typical working hours. Often residents must take time off work for court appearances due to minor offenses such as traffic tickets and other code violations.
The number of cases to be heard is limited. To be placed on the docket, call the Clerk of Recorder’s Court at 770.619.6100.
