District Court Moves from T.C. to Duquesne

Magisterial District Judge Scott H. Schricker got an early Christmas gift when his office moved from Turtle Creek to Duquesne.
Schricker, of Duquesne, says that his office had outgrown the office front in Penn Plaza, Turtle Creek, and after months of renovation, a much larger spot opened in the Duquesne Plaza, next door to where the Save-A-Lot grocery store had been. Schricker, and his staff of five moved into the contemporary facility in early December and have been holding hearings without disruption.
The long-serving magistrate and his staff had been in the Turtle Creek office since Schricker took office in 2004. In addition to Duquesne and Turtle Creek, Schricker’s district also includes Braddock, North Braddock and East Pittsburgh boroughs.
The new office has a small work space for landlords and others to fill out paperwork, protective glass between the lobby and offices where the secretary and clerks work, and a larger waiting area. There is a mixture of updated flooring and durable carpeting, as well as new lighting that give the office a modern look.
Inside the courtroom, Schricker says, there is much more room for plaintiffs, defendants, police, attorneys and all others to co-exist than at the Turtle Creek site. Prisoners who arrive with constables have a separate entrance in the back of the building and male and female accommodations. There is also a rest room for the prisoners to use, separate from the rest of the public.
The new offices have access from Route 837 and are only a block away from the Duquesne city hall, police and fire departments.
Schricker says there had been some confusion with some residents who were under the impression that the office had closed, instead of relocated. All telephone calls were answered and business was conducted as usual during the smooth transition, he says.
Office hours remain 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and phone and fax numbers also remain unchanged, court officials say.
