Municipal Court resumes Monday morning

Biloxi Municipal Court, which has been postponed since mid-March because of the coronavirus threat, will resume court proceedings Monday beginning at 9 a.m.

Court Administrator David Leckich said only people with immediate and direct business with the court will be allowed into the courtroom, in order to comply with social distancing and to maintain a six-foot distance between individuals. Only those whose name appears on the docket, or those making a payment or filing a Domestic Abuse Protective order will be allowed to enter. Friends or family members will not be admitted into the courtroom, and there will be a three-person limit in the payment area.

Leckich said that before the coronavirus, Biloxi Municipal Court would see between 200 and 250 people a week in court and another 150 or so at the payment windows.

“We mailed a reset letter to all the defendants and victims that had their cases postponed,” Leckich said, “and we will also send out text messages to each defendant a week before their court date to remind them of their date. We have had to reset cases out a couple of months, but we should be caught up by the first of August.”

Leckich also said that anyone with any symptoms that may be related to Covid-19 — such as a temperature of 100.4 or higher, experiencing a cough, shortness of breath or sore throat — should contact the court to have your case rescheduled.
