Topeka Municipal Court closure extended through Friday

The City of Topeka is extending the temporary closure of its Municipal Court and Probation and Prosecution Divisions through Friday while it continues to investigate a possible cyber security concern with one of the court’s information systems. It remains unclear whether or not the incident is related to the Kansas Supreme Court’s security incident.

All impacted dockets and trials will be rescheduled. Court operations will open to the public on Monday, October 23.

“This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. We understand the impact this closure has on the community, and we look forward to resuming Court operations on Monday, or sooner, if possible,” said Topeka Municipal Court Administrative Judge Karan Thadani.
