Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and home to the University of Colorado, Boulder is a great place to bike, hike, study, and live. Even in this beautiful setting, however, legal issues do arise. When they do, they are generally handled in one of the courts listed below. Whether you have been summoned for jury duty, are bringing your own small claims case, or need to attend a hearing, check out the information we have compiled below to assist you.
Note: This court handles municipal ordinance violations such as traffic infractions, traffic offenses (inattentive or reckless driving), code violations, and criminal violations. The website provides access to a variety of forms you may need, as well as the option to pay certain tickets on-line. If you have been summoned to jury duty for the municipal court, you can check the website for updated jury reporting instructions -- check the date you have been summoned and the status of the trial to determine whether it has been cancelled, you need to appear, or you need to check back later. Finally, if you have received a Minor in Possession (“MIP”) ticket, check this section of the court’s website for additional information and related links.
Note: There are two locations for the Boulder County Combined Court -- one in Boulder proper and one in Longmont (listed separately). These courts combine both the Boulder County Division (handling misdemeanors, traffic violations, civil matters up to $15,000, small claims and some preliminary matters in felony cases) and the 20th Judicial District Division (handling felonies, divorces, probate, juvenile and civil matters over $15,000). If you have been summoned to jury duty, you may refer to these frequently asked questions for more information. You may also check jury reporting status; access postponement or disqualification forms; get driving directions; and more, by clicking here. For small claims matters (up to $7500), refer to the Small Claims Handbook to get started, and refer here for necessary forms and additional information.
Note: This is the second location of the Boulder County Combined Court. If you have received a jury summons for this location and are looking for information, including the reporting schedule, driving directions, and more check here.
