Fernley, NV, May 15, 2020 – Following Governor Sisolak’s directive regarding Nevada’s phase one reopening plan, The Fernley Municipal Court has established a virtual court system.

The Court has worked, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, to ensure there is access to Fernley Municipal Court while prioritizing the health and safety of its staff, court users and the public.

Effective immediately, all Fernley Municipal Court cases will be heard virtually, with all interactions taking place by video or telephone. The Court will be sending defendants letters that will contain the information needed to virtually access their court hearings.

The Court’s shift to a virtual court system will make it possible for participants to resolve their cases remotely via ZOOM and will eliminate person-to-person contact in court proceedings.

For more information, regarding virtual court operations or to obtain information regarding an upcoming hearing please contact the Court at (775)784-9870 or FMC@cityoffernley.org.
