Pipe Burst Cuts Power to Civil Courts Building Feb. 18

A pipe burst overnight has caused loss of some power and capabilities in the Civil Courts Building of the St. Louis Circuit Court on Thursday, Feb. 18.

The Court will continue to operate through this inconvenience. Repairs have begun. All but a limited staff are prohibited from entering the building at this time.

The burst occurred on the first-floor mezzanine. Staff whose workspace is impacted should contact supervisors, who are maximizing remote access and work-from-home.

The Court will work to find temporary spaces in the Carnahan Courthouse to accommodate those who must be on-site. This includes staff and judges assigned to Probate Court, adult abuse, and Divs. 27 and 28.

Starting Monday, January 4, 2021, Division 1 Informal Matters will be held each week on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9:00 AM using the Webex video-conferencing platform. The WebEx address is

In 1828, the city of St. Louis opened its first courthouse. For more than 180 years, the Circuit Court has stood among the most storied and historically significant courts in America.

In 1850, a St. Louis jury granted Dred and Harriet Scott, Missouri slaves, their freedom. That decision would eventually be overturned in the United States Supreme Court and push the country into civil war.

Today, the St. Louis Circuit Court comprises two courthouses -- the Civil Courts Building and the Carnahan Courthouse -- and conducts approximately 200 jury trials a year, staffs a juvenile court and detention facility, operates a drug treatment court for nonviolent offenders and is active in public education through the city’s schools and community groups.

As it was in 1828, the Court remains committed to providing all people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law and to efficiently and effectively carry out the duties bestowed upon us by the State of Missouri.
