Nevada District Courts
Nevada District Courts are the courts of original jurisdiction in the state of Nevada. Appeals from these trial courts go directly to the Nevada Supreme Court as there is no intermediate appellate court in Nevada.
For civil cases involving money damages, district courts have a minimum jurisdictional threshold of $10,000.00. Any civil case in which a litigant is seeking a specific sum of money that is less than $10,000.00 needs to be litigated through the appropriate Nevada Justice Courts.
