New Dependency Courtroom at the Pomona South Courthouse Will Open January 3

Effective January 3, 2022, the Superior Court of Los Angeles County’s Juvenile Dependency Division will expand its footprint in east Los Angeles County with the launch of a pilot satellite courtroom at the Pomona South Courthouse to provide children and families in the Court’s East District better access to services, Presiding Judge Eric C. Taylor announced today. Currently Dependency cases from the Pomona South Courthouse are heard at the Edmund D. Edelman Children’s Court in Monterey Park. The opening of an additional Dependency courtroom will allow the Court to provide increased convenience and support to vulnerable families.

“The Court is always looking for efficient ways to expand access to justice in our communities,” Presiding Judge Taylor said. “We are proud to work with our justice partners to provide an additional Dependency courtroom to serve the needs of the children and families of Pomona and the rest of east Los Angeles County.”

Judge Stacy Weise will preside over the new courtroom, designated as Dept. 281 at the Pomona South Courthouse, located at 400 Civic Center Drive, Pomona.

The new courtroom will handle cases from the Department of Children and Family Services office in Pomona, starting with new filings and eventually existing cases that are transferred. New Dependency cases will be assigned to Dept. 281 for future hearing dates.
