About District Court
The District Court is often called the people’s court. More people have contact with the district court than any other court. The District Court handles most traffic violations, all civil cases with claims up to $25,000, landlord-tenant matters, most traffic tickets, and all misdemeanor criminal cases (generally, cases where the accused, if found guilty, cannot be sentenced to more than one year in jail). In addition, small claims cases are heard by a division of the district court.
There are approximately 100 district courts in Michigan. District court judges are elected for six-year terms.
