Contemplation on the Snowy Days:
When the Seattle weather is closing things down, there are good places to go to find out if the courts are open without leaving the warmth of your own home or office:
From our state court web site, on the home, Current Events in Washington Courts, page you can choose the Court Closures link to view a list of courts with upcoming closures:
For King County Superior Court:
For the US District Court – Western District of Washington with courthouses located in Seattle and Tacoma:
For the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals:
Each of these URL’s brings up a web site rich with information and containing links to other resources and web sites. From the timely and familiar, a need to know when court is closed due to weather, to varied and far-reaching aspects of the law, sharing and publicizing tools of our trade benefits us all.
