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.

Law Library
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 reference.
