The Decatur, Georgia, Court System
The Judicial Branch of the State of Georgia consists of courts of limited, general and appellate jurisdiction. The courts of limited jurisdiction, which hear civil cases such as personal injury lawsuits, include magistrate courts, which hear civil suits where the compensation sought is under $15,000, and the state courts of counties, which hear civil cases in addition to misdemeanor criminal cases.
The basic trial court in Decatur, Georgia, with general jurisdiction for hearing cases involving state law is the superior court. In superior court, any civil or criminal case may be tried and all felonies must be tried. The legislature has divided Georgia into 48 superior court circuits, with each circuit containing from one to eight counties and served by one or more judges.
Georgia’s two major courts of appellate jurisdiction are the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court. These courts do not try cases, but hear appeals from lower courts.
