The North Dakota Court of Appeals was created by the North Dakota State Legislature in 1987 to hear cases assigned to it by the North Dakota Supreme Court.[1]

Its three judges serve for temporary terms of up to one year and are chosen from among active and retired district court judges, retired supreme court justices, and lawyers.

The court hears cases infrequently. It can only hear cases assigned to it by the North Dakota Supreme Court. In some years, the supreme court assigns no cases to the court of appeals.[2]
