Please be aware that due to growing concerns about the safety of our community and the spread of the Coronavirus and COVID-19 disease, the Lawson E. Thomas Courthouse is closed to the public, except on mission critical matters. 

  Courthouses are closed for in-person hearings and trials based on public health advisories at the direction of the Florida Supreme Court. The Eleventh Judicial Circuit wants you safe at home. 

We are establishing Virtual Courtrooms. Court hearings in your case that we can hold remotely  via video or phone conference will be held on the Zoom platform, which is free to you. You will receive an email from the Court if we are proceeding with your hearing with the information you need to connect.  To participate by video, you must click on the weblink you received in the email invitation at the time your hearing is scheduled or call the phone number listed in the invitation to participate by phone. You do not need to download anything or set up an account in order for you to participate in a zoom hearing.

Video appearance is required for any participant whose testimony is necessary so the judge can administer the oath.

Please wait until a day before your scheduled hearing for the court to send you an email containing a Zoom link and instructions.  If you resolve your matter, please cancel it in CourtMAP or, if you have no access to CourtMAP, by calling the judge’s judicial assistant.


It is important that  ALL ATTORNEYS AND SELF REPRESENTED LITIGANTS SIGN UP FOR AN ACCOUNT AT FLORIDA COURTS E-FILING PORTAL AT

This Section is now using courtMAP and document submissions are no longer available via eCourtesy.

courtMAP is a new online Management and Access Platform built upon technology infrastructure from Broward’s Court Management System.

courtMAP combines eCourtesy with online scheduling, online notification/confirmation, and allows judges to create and e-File orders. courtMAP also allows parties to self-schedule their case events - motion calendar, special sets, and trials - and attach the documentation previously submitted via eCourtesy.
