ATLANTA, Georgia, March 20, 2020 – The Magistrate Court of Fulton County and the Fulton County Marshal are coordinating efforts to ensure that all evictions are suspended until the limited Judicial Emergency, declared by Chief Justice Harold Melton of the Georgia Supreme Court, is lifted. All evictions scheduled during the Judicial Emergency are temporarily suspended.
The Magistrate Court of Fulton County will provide constitutionally required, essential services, specifically applications for search and arrest warrants through electronic interface as well as First Appearance hearings six days a week.
Absent additional direction from Chief Justice Harold Melton, the landlord-tenant (eviction) calendar along with the other suspended calendars will resume on April 14, 2020, pursuant to the Court’s Amended Order of Business.
