Municipal Court

COVID-19 Municipal Court Update

Due to COVID-19 and the encouragement for "social distancing," all court hearings and appearance dates are postponed at this time.

All defendants will receive a letter in the mail with their new court date or appearance date within 30 days after Governor Abbott lifts the State of Disaster.

The Bridgeport Municipal Court is a non-court of record and is the Judicial Branch of city government. The court conducts adult and teen court hearings and is dedicated to providing to all citizens, other departments, and entities a fair, independent, and impartial forum for handling fine-only cases arising within the city limits of Bridgeport.

The Municipal Court follows the procedures set forth under Texas Law and provides all persons the right to trial by judge or jury. Although every person has the right to be represented by an attorney, most citizens who appear in the Municipal Court represent themselves.
