Chief Justice for Administration & Management Robert A. Mulligan has announced that the Massachusetts Trial Court will relocate the Natick District Court by the end of September. The Administrative Office of the Trial Court has advised the Town of Natick that the court will terminate its lease at the town building located at 13 East Central Street when the existing lease expires on September 30.
The Natick District Court has jurisdiction for civil and criminal matters in Natick and Sherborn. Most of the court’s business will be handled at the Framingham Division of the District Court located at 600 Concord Street in Framingham. The judges and staff for the Natick division will relocate to manage the caseload. The temporary relocation is an expense reduction measure in response to the statewide economic decline which has severely impacted the Commonwealth’s FY10 budget.
Transition planning is underway to accommodate the personnel and case files. New contact information for the court and probation will be announced when arrangements have been completed.
