Fairfield Judicial District to Officially Become the Bridgeport Judicial District

Effective Jan. 1, 2024, the Fairfield Judicial District will officially become the Bridgeport
Judicial District, due to legislation that passed this year.
“It makes sense,” Chief Court Administrator Elizabeth A. Bozzuto said. “All three of the
courthouses in this judicial district are in the city of Bridgeport, not the town of Fairfield. That
could confuse someone unfamiliar with the courts, and the change makes clear the location of
these facilities.”
State Rep. Steve Stafstrom, D-Bridgeport and House co-chair of the General Assembly’s
Judiciary Committee, agreed.
“This re-naming not only adequately reflects the location of the courthouses but also the
central role that Bridgeport plays in the region and the State’s legal community,” Representative
Stafstrom said. “I appreciate the Judicial Branch’s swift action to implement the legislative name
The Judicial District serves the city of Bridgeport and the towns of Easton, Fairfield,
Monroe, Stratford and Trumbull. The Bridgeport-based courthouses are the Judicial District
Courthouse, 1061 Main St., the Geographical Area No. 2 Courthouse at 172 Golden Hill St. and
the Juvenile Courthouse at 60 Housatonic Ave.
