City Court Announces Changes Due To COVID-19

Normal court operations at Baton Rouge City Court will be suspended until April 20, 2020. The court will be open to the public to take civil filings and to pay fines and fees. However, we are encouraging the public to pay fines and fees online or by telephone and to utilize fax filing for civil cases. Our fax filing number is (225)389-5260. All prescriptive periods will remain unaffected at this time.


All cases will be reassigned and the court will send notice to the last address that was provided on file. It is your responsibility to ensure that the court has a current address.
