Courts in North Dakota
The Courts in North Dakota consist of a state court system and two federal courts.
The Supreme Court is the court of last resort in the state. In its adjudicative capacity, the Supreme Court is primarily an appellate court with jurisdiction to hear appeals from decisions of the district courts. It is also responsible for the administration of the state judicial system.  
North Dakota's 53 counties are represented by seven judicial districts. These courts have general jurisdiction in all cases and also serve as juvenile courts. 
The Municipal Courts deal with violations of city ordinances. 
Appeals are heard in the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals.
