Court changes docket schedule for landlord-tenant cases

Effective in January 2021, the Boone County Circuit Court is changing the docket schedule for landlord-tenant cases.

Beginning Jan. 7, initial appearances and trials in landlord-tenant cases will take place on Thursday mornings and afternoons.

Formerly most initial appearances and trials took place only on Monday mornings.

The change is designed to allow more time to hear the growing number of landlord-tenant cases.

Associate Circuit Judge Tracy Gonzalez will continue to be the primary judge assigned to hear landlord-tenant cases.
