As a result of recent budget cuts, starting today, September 12 2011, the Santa Clarita Courthouse will no longer handle felony cases. All felony cases previously assigned to Santa Clarita Courthouse will be shifted to the San Fernando Courthouse. So if you have any upcoming hearings on felony cases at the Santa Clarita Courthouse, be ready to drive to the San Fernando Court.
Additionally, starting October 3, 2011, ALL traffic cases heard in the San Fernando Court will be shuffled to the Chatsworth Courthouse.
And finally, all Family Law cases assigned to the San Fernando Courthouse will be shuffled from second floor to the fourth floor.
