Justice Courts are established by counties and municipalities and have the authority to deal with class B and C misdemeanors, infractions, violations of city ordinances, and small claims committed within their territorial jurisdiction. Justice Court jurisdictions are determined by the boundaries of local government entities such as cities or counties.
Four-person juries hear jury trials in the Justice Courts. City attorneys prosecute cases involving municipal ordinance violations and State Law in municipal courts; county attorneys prosecute cases involving violations of county ordinances and State Law in the county courts. Litigants and defendants often act without an attorney (pro se) in Justice Courts, but may hire counsel or apply for a public defender.
Justice Courts also have a Small Claims Department, which has jurisdiction over claims under $10,000.
