Due to the high number of COVID-19 cases in our community, and in an effort to reduce community transmission, the Topeka Municipal Court is cancelling all dockets, including trials, from Wednesday, November 18, 2020 through Friday, December 4, 2020. During that time, the Court will continue to conduct its jail hearings via video conferencing on Mondays and Wednesdays.
All cases during that time will be rescheduled and notices of hearing will be sent by mail to defendants and defense counsel.
