Upper Arlington Mayor's Court

The Upper Arlington Mayor's Court serves as the judicial branch of the City of Upper Arlington. The Mayor's staff (Clerk of Court and Deputy Clerk of Court) also functions as the Violations Bureau, collecting payments for violations that do not require a court appearance. The Clerk's office keeps abreast of changes in pertinent laws and regulations, and strives to enhance day-to-day operations with all persons associated with the court.

The Administrator of the Upper Arlington Mayor's Court is Mayor Francis C. Greenhill.  Steven B. Hayes, Janet Grubb and Michael Close serve as Magistrates. The Mayor appoints the Clerk of Court, Melissa Kohler.

Mayor's Court convenes every Thursday at Noon, at which time a Magistrate presides over sentencing of arraignments, pre-trials, probation revocation hearings, and financial hearings. Trials and motion hearings are scheduled for 1 p.m., once the arraignment docket is finished.

The Clerk supervises a court volunteer program established primarily through the local American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) to assist with the weekly court sessions. Volunteers check defendants in for court and escort the defendants from the courtroom to the Clerk of Court's office. This dedicated team of volunteers is vital to the smooth operation of Mayor's Court.
The Magistrate presides over sentencing of:
  1. Arraignments
  2. Trials
  3. Pre-Trials
  4. Motion Hearings
  5. Probation Revocation Hearings
