NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Court services in Nashville have been impacted by the downtown explosion on Christmas morning.

The Tennessee Supreme Court office shared that no state or county facilities were physically damaged in the blast. However, email, phone and other technical services were affected at the Supreme Court building, Administrative Office of the Courts, several commissions and the Davidson county courts.

Some services have been restored, while others are still in progress.

The Nashville Supreme Court Building, including the Appellate Clerk’s Office, will be closed on Monday, December 28. All methods of filing will still be available, including the drop box located outside of the building, e-filing, fax filing and mail services. Questions can be directed to the Jackson or Knoxville Appellate Court Clerk offices

The building for the Administrative Office of the Courts will be closed for the week, with staff working remotely. Phone lines have not yet been restored but email is working.

The Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Program's office is in the blast zone and received heavy damage. The website and email are functioning, though emails from the weekend might have not gone through. Phone lines are not working.

Many of the Davidson County court offices are located within or near the blast zone. They are on a pre-planned reduced schedule this week. The court clerk offices are scheduled to open on Monday but may have limited phone and email capabilities.
