City Courts, often referred to as Municipal Courts, are courts established by individual cities in the state to adjudicate crimes and some other disputes that have occurred within the city. Generally, the crimes adjudicated in Municipal Courts are minor in nature and result in monetary fines. It is most common for a defendant to be charged in Municipal Court with a traffic offense, although the courts do adjudicate other crimes which violate the City’s Code or Ordinances.
