All jury trial cases are postponed and will be reset at a later date.  Notifications of the new dates are forthcoming.

All Court hearings (other than jury trials) are being conducted virtually using the Zoom application.   

City of Sugar Land Municipal Court will continue remote court proceedings for all hearings.  Cases will be held as currently scheduled using the Zoom platform.  Information with instructions about the remote proceedings and the date of the hearing will be emailed to each defendant a week prior to their court date.  If you have an upcoming court hearing and you have not provided the court with your email address, please make sure to provide the court with your email address as soon as possible.

The remote appearance is not optional and neglecting to appear will have the same consequences as not appearing at an in-person proceeding.  Alternatively, options for handling a citation prior to a court date, can be found here, on the court’s website.

If you do not have access to technology that allows you to appear remotely, please contact the Court prior to your scheduled court date.  The phone number to call is (281) 275-2560.
