Marion County Courts will begin to transition more than 200 employees to Indianapolis’ new Community Justice Campus next month after delays of the move-in process, the Marion Superior Court has announced.
Emily VanOsdol, court administrator for the Marion Superior Courts, confirmed Thursday that the courts’ formal move to the new facility will begin April 19.
Light operations will commence through April 28, with jury trials continuing to take place at the City-County Building.
The court office will then make its official transition to the new facility April 29. A soft opening with light operations will start the week of May 2, with juries still at the City-County Building.
Full operations will begin May 9 at the Community Justice Campus, bringing jury trials to the new facility.
Marion Superior Presiding Judge Amy Jones hosted a media tour of the new facility last week, accompanied by VanOsdol and Marion Superior Judge Marc Rothenberg.
The courts had planned to move at the end of 2021 or early 2022, with the main courthouse later rescheduled to move the first week of February 2022 and conclude by the end of that month. But COVID-related-delays changed those plans in December 2021.
