Municipal Court to Resume at Robert Mills Courthouse
Non-jury trials resume March 24, jury trials resume May 12
The City of Camden will resume its court operations once again at the Historic Robert Mills Courthouse, located at 607 Broad Street in Camden. Non-jury trials are to resume on March 24, 2021 and jury trials will resume on May 12, 2021 at this same location.
The Welcome Center at the Robert Mills Courthouse will remain open on the first floor while Municipal Court is being conducted in the courtroom on the second floor.
The City of Camden Municipal Court has employed several measures to ensure everyone’s safety. In addition to requiring the maintenance of social distancing, court hearings are staggered so that there are no more than ten (10) hearings per hour to minimize contact. Additionally, everyone who enters Robert Mills Courthouse will have his/her temperature checked and will be required to wear a face covering. A face covering will be provided for an individual who does not have access to one. All court personnel will be required to wear face coverings as well. There will be an option to remain in your vehicle until your specific matter is called before the Court. The Court is also providing multiple hand-sanitizing stations, “sneeze guards,” and will be actively cleaning the Robert Mills Courthouse to minimize any health risks.
Individuals, victims, and witnesses are being separately notified of the rescheduled date and time to appear at Robert Mills Courthouse for the respective hearing. The City of Camden requests that if an individual is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or if an individual has had close contact with an individual experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19, this information should be communicated to the Clerk of Court, The Honorable Belinda Davis, at 803-432-2421 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that the matter may be rescheduled.
