Superior Court

​Superior ​Court​​

Welcome to the Superior Court homepage. The Superior Court is comprised of twenty-two (22) judges and five (5) magistrates. The court is the forum for jury and non-jury trials of both civil and criminal matters.

The court has original jurisdiction in all felony proceedings, in civil cases where the amount in controversy exceeds $10,000, and in equity matters. 

Appeals from District Court trials result in trials de novo, entirely new trials, in the Superior Court. The court also hears agency, zoning board, and probate court appeals, among others.
