Court Etiquette

The Mission of the Scottsdale City Court is to provide superior customer service. In return, the Court expects all visitors to respect the Court and its employees. Below, are several things you should know before you visit the Court:  

  1. It is important that visitors understand the appropriate dress code for the Court. The Court is a place of business and visitors should wear clean, fitted clothes. Shirt and shoes are required. Please take your hat off before entering any courtroom. 
  2. All pagers and cell phones should be turned off before entering the courtroom. 
  3. It is also important to know that food, drink, and ALL weapons are strictly prohibited from the building. Do not attempt to bring in any prohibited items. The Court will not store prohibited items in the lobby for pick-up. Leave these items at home, or in your car. 
  4. The Court also asks that you be patient, as it can sometimes be very busy. Taking a number from the ticket dispenser, located in the lobby, as soon as you enter the building will ensure that you will be helped in a timely manner. Also, have all materials that you brought with you ready for the Court Clerk.
