When is my next court date?

If you don’t know your next court date, don’t put off calling to find out.  Missing a court date without a really good reason might result in the judge taking you into custody when you do show up or a warrant being issued for your arrest.  The easiest way to find out your next court date is to contact your Deputy Public Defender.  If he or she is not available, you can call the Public Defender’s office and most likely our staff will be able to tell you your next court date. Whenever you call a Public Defender Office, it is always very helpful to have your case number available.


The Nevada County Superior Court provides a website for looking up individual's court dates based on their Case number or name. If you have not yet appeared in court, are not represented by the public defender's office or another attorney, and have questions about your case, you may call the court clerk directly at 530-265-1311.
