Due to Covid-19 restrictions and concerns all municipal court hearings are cancelled until further notice. These restrictions and cancellations are direct orders from the Supreme Court . It is your responsibility to contact the Clerk of Court for Sullivan’s Island to notify her if any address changes are made during this period or if the address listed on your citation is not your current residential address.
Additionally, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, Court Administration has postponed all jury trials for Spring 2021. Our hopes are for trials to resume in Fall 2021. A letter confirming new trial dates will be mailed out as soon as the restrictions are lifted and dates have been set.
