Serving the Citizens of Murray Since 1999

It is the goal of the Murray Municipal Justice Court that you know your rights and duties. We want every person who comes here to receive fair treatment in accord with the ideals of the Court's mission statement and goals.


The mission of the Murray Municipal Justice Court is to provide the citizens of Murray, and visitors therein, an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law.


These guidelines have been developed in order to meet the stated intentions of the mission statement and to promote effective and efficient Court operations. The Court will provide for:

  • Appropriate service to the public
  • Collocation of key judicial programs
  • Timely delivery of judicial resources
  • Uniformity of process and procedure
  • Appropriate setting for the administration of justice
  • A safe and fulfilling work environment for Court staff
  • Flexibility, economy, maintenance and protection of judicial staff and resources.


The judges and staff of this Court are committed to the City's mission and goals and are working to effectively deal with ordinance violations and low level criminal offenses to make our City a better place to live and work in. The Justice Court is an independent branch of government constitutionally entrusted with the fair and just resolution of disputes in order to preserve the rule of law and to protect the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States and the State of Utah.

By law, the Court must apply rules of procedure and evidence to each case heard. These procedures are applied uniformly, without regard to personal considerations. Each judge is sworn to enforce without favor the laws of the State and community, which are made by the people for the protection of all.
