CITY OF RENO NEWS RELEASE
Reno Municipal Court is offering citizens a deal: Clean up old warrants, traffic tickets, failures to appear or comply, and other court problems – at a discount, and without being arrested or assessed additional warrant fees.
On Thursday, Sept. 15, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Judge Dorothy Nash Holmes will be available to resolve any case that comes in, no matter how old it is. Most fines will be reduced by 50 percent (except those set by NRS) and must be paid in full that day by cash or credit card. Spanish-speaking staff will be available to assist people who have limited English proficiency.
No court hearings were scheduled for the “dark” week of September 12-16 so the four judges could attend the annual American Judges Association conference. This year, however, the judges decided not to attend the conference in order to save money.
In an effort to “clean up” thousands of old warrants and unresolved cases, Holmes and staff have volunteered to hold open court on Thursday of that week to resolve any old or non-compliant case presented. “It’s an offer you can’t refuse,” says Holmes.
