Trials

Please refer to the Grant County Superior Court page for the latest updates on court hearings, procedures, and WebEx links.

Readiness Hearings will be held every Monday to decide if a case is ready for trial on the Wednesday of that same week. Usually, no more than one of the cases below will go to trial each week.

This website will be updated as best as possible to show the status of cases for the week of trial. The Victim/Witness Unit has established this page so that you can check whether a case was continued, pleaded out, or is going to trial. This page is updated within minutes when we find out for sure what is happening with each case. 

If no decision has been made on your case, check back again later - or you can call 509-754-2011 ext. 3950. You may also be able to find more information on the Washington Courts website at http://dw.courts.wa.gov/
