Superior Court Hearings
The Superior Court hears and decides controversies and handles related
hearings and proceedings covering both civil matters and criminal felonies.
Criminal felony cases are those cases where the defendant could be
sentenced to a state penitentiary. Civil cases include those brought on
equitable grounds; those involving title to or possession of real property;
those testing the legality of any tax; those where the controversy amounts to
$300 or more (Statute now authorizes the district Court to decide cases
involving up to $35,000; Small Claims Court has jurisdiction up to 2,500.
Most Superior Court civil cases involve $10,000 or more); probate matters;
domestic relations; juvenile matters (both offender and dependency); mental
and alcohol petitions; adoptions; and a variety of other proceedings.
Located in the Superior courtroom, the Law Library is a collection of law
related publications and references available to officers of the court and
general public, and serves the dual purpose of being the Judge's library
