Palmer Courthouse

PALMER — The Palmer Courthouse recently closed down due to damage caused by the extreme weather conditions.

According to a press release from the Alaska Court System, three pipes burst inside the Palmer Courthouse and caused water damage to the facility. No files or electronic documents were damaged during the flood.

The Anchorage Court and Palmer judges are remotely handling Palmer’s emergency proceedings, including domestic violence protective orders, mental commitments, emergency Child In Need of Aid hearings, arraignments, and search warrant requests, but all other matters are being rescheduled with court staff notifying affected parties and attorneys.

The Palmer Courthouse will remain closed while contractors work to remove the water. The Alaska Court System is working to reopen the facility and resume regular services as soon as possible.

For updates on the current status of the Palmer Courthouse, visit the Alaska Court System Facebook page or Twitter account.
