In a move to better accommodate public access and security in the New Castle County Courthouse in Wilmington, the courthouse will move its opening time for the public to 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays, effective Monday, May 6.
Prior to 8:30 a.m., ONLY court employees and others with courthouse ID badges will be permitted to enter the courthouse.
Courthouse Administrative Officer Jim Wright says the change will allow time for court employees to access the courthouse and report for duty in advance of the public opening time so that they are available to assist members of the public immediately upon their entry.
Courthouse hours as of May 6 will be 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
