1100 Union Street, San Diego, CA 92101

The new central courthouse, which opened in late 2017, provides the court's central court district with a full-service, consolidated facility for criminal, probate, family court, and small claims services. It will also bring downtown a small claims calendar from the Kearny Mesa courthouse, improving service to residents of the central San Diego area. This project is the largest to be funded under the Senate Bill 1407 court construction program.
