Going to Court

 

The Hennepin County courts are located in eight (8) buildings, including five in downtown Minneapolis and three in the suburbs. Everyone who enters courtrooms must pass through weapons screening. The buildings are managed by Hennepin County.

Find a Courtroom

Most Hennepin County court buildings have display monitors with information about daily hearings (e.g., party names, courtrooms, and judges). Hearing information is also listed in the daily Court Calendar. If you cannot find a hearing location, contact Court Administration.

Give yourself enough time to get to the courthouse, park, pass through weapons screening, and find your courtroom. If you are late for your hearing or miss it, you may not be allowed to reschedule it.

TIP: The Government Center has a C-Tower (for Courts) and an A-Tower (for Administration). Each tower has a weapons screening area on the skyway level (2nd floor). Weapons screening in the C-Tower is often very busy, and it can be faster to enter through weapons screening in the A-Tower, and then use one of the "bridge" floors to cross over to the C-Tower and courtrooms. You can use the elevators or stairway to change floors.

free wifi iconFree public access wi-fi is available at the Hennepin Courts on the HC_Guest network, which is provided by Hennepin County. No password is needed, and the network is accessible in most public areas within court buildings.

  • In the courtroom, do NOT...carry a weapon, chew gum or tobacco, eat, drink, read a newspaper, sleep, wear a hat, or use electronic devices.
  • Do not use electronic devices...no cell phones, pagers, cameras, other recording devices. Some courts do not allow cell phones in the courtroom, even if turned off. Learn more about cameras in the courtroom.
  • Only one person may speak at a time in the courtroom. A court reporter is recording everything that is said during a hearing, and he can only record one speaker at a time. Ask for permission to speak, and address the judge as "Your Honor."
  • Do not bring children to court. Unless the judge has told you to bring your children to the hearing, please arrange for someone to take care of your children. If you must bring them to court, please bring a responsible person to care for them outside of the courtroom.
