List of state intermediate appellate courts
40 of the 50 states have an intermediate appellate court, and ten (Delaware*, Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming) don't. The District of Columbia does not have an intermediate appellate court.
Some of the states that do have intermediate appellate courts have more than one, such as Alabama, which has one intermediate appellate court for civil matters and another for criminal, and Pennsylvania, with a Superior Court and a Commonwealth Court which are both appellate courts but with different jurisdictions.
Of the states with intermediate appellate courts, some have many divisions with varying degrees of independence from each other.
