The Court is aware that a scammer is spoofing the court's telephone number and calling people claiming they are a Deputy from the US District Court. The recipients of the phone calls are told that they did not respond to a subpoena, and they need to post a bond or turn themselves into the Tahoe City Courthouse.  These calls are NOT affiliated with the court.

COVID-19 Update:

Pursuant to Executive Order 205, appropriate face coverings are strongly recommended at the Nevada City and Truckee Courthouses. View updates related to COVID-19.


Do not visit any Nevada County Courthouse if you have recently tested positive for COVID-19; have had direct exposure to someone known to have COVID-19; or if you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, such as fever, cough, headache or shortness of breath. Instead, contact your attorney or call the court at (530) 362-4309 to arrange an alternative.

Case & Calendar Information

Web Portal

Case Information resides on our Web Portal. You can look up information about court cases, traffic citations, or get the current court calendar for any chosen day. If you are interested in making credit card payments please visit our Pay Fines & Fees page.

The purpose of this system is to provide the ability to research and locate matters in the Nevada County Superior Court, and create an online account to view your electronic case file for existing cases in the County of Nevada. 

The most current filings may or may not be in the system. While the court strives to ensure accuracy of the information it provides, the court recognizes that on occasion errors occur. Thus, the court encourages anyone seeking to rely on this information to verify it by checking any court paperwork or notice that you may have. Use of the information contained in the Court's Online Portal is the user’s responsibility. 

Note: An account is required to search for public case records. For further questions please review the FAQs below.
