Judiciary announces Towson District Court relocation plans

Towson District Court operations will move temporarily to Catonsville later this year to allow for a scheduled HVAC system replacement in Towson. The temporary relocation is expected to last six months.

The date for the move will be announced in the coming weeks, according to a news release from the Maryland Judiciary, which added that the move will happen once the new Catonsville District Courthouse in the Rolling Crossroads Professional Park is complete. The current Catonsville District Courthouse will continue normal operations during the period, the release stated.

The staff and operations from Towson will be relocated to the new facility while repairs are made but will return to Towson once they are complete. Signage has been posted at the current Towson District Courthouse with details about the upcoming location change, according to the release.

“This is an unfortunate situation, but the safety and the well-being of both our court visitors and staff is a top priority and we will continue to provide the highest level of service during the temporary location change,” District Court Chief Judge John P. Morrissey said in a statement.
