Courts in New Castle and Sussex counties are not affected.
The Kent County Courthouse and the Kent County Family Court Building in Dover will be closed all day Tuesday, Jan. 17 due to inaugural ceremonies for Gov-elect John Carney and Lt. Gov-elect Bethany Hall-Long.
Court spokesman Sean O’Sullivan said the Kent County operations of all courts located inside the Kent County Courthouse – including Chancery Court, Superior Court, Court of Common Pleas and Justice of the Peace Court 16 – will be closed along with Family Court operations in Kent County on that day.
The court facilities in Dover are being closed to accommodate the recommendations of Capitol Police due to logistical and traffic issues related to the Inauguration in and around the Legislative Mall.
Court operations in New Castle County and Sussex County and all other Justice of the Peace Court facilities will continue as usual, O’Sullivan said.
