TAUNTON DISTRICT COURT TO RELOCATE TO FORMER COHANNET SCHOOL
Boston, MA — After serving the public for nearly180 years in the courthouse at 15 Court Street, the Taunton District Court will relocate to the Cohannet School building at 120 Cohannet Street in Taunton.

The relocation will take place in two phases.

The Taunton District Court offices will relocate on the weekend of December 3 and 4, and open for business on Monday, December 5. The telephone number for the Court will remain the same.
The jurisdiction of the Taunton District Court includes the Bristol County communities of Berkley, Dighton, Easton, Raynham, Rehoboth, Seekonk, and Taunton. Judge Kevan J. Cunningham is the First Justice of Taunton District Court.
