Clerk - District Courts

Macomb County District and Municipal Courts

District Courts have exclusive jurisdiction of all civil litigation up to $25,000 and also handle garnishments, eviction proceedings, land contract forfeitures, civil infractions, and other proceedings. For criminal cases, the district court conducts preliminary examinations in felony cases and handles all misdemeanors where punishment does not exceed one year in jail including arraignment, sentence, and setting and acceptance of bail. District judges may appoint magistrates. The magistrates may set bail and accept bonds in criminal matters, accept guilty pleas, sentence for traffic, motor carrier, dog, game, snowmobile and boat law violations, and issue arrest and search warrants. Attorney magistrates may hear small claims cases. Magistrates may, at the direction of the Chief Judge, perform other duties allowed by statute.

Municipal Court civil jurisdiction is limited to $1,500. Its criminal jurisdiction is similar to district court. Municipal judges must be lawyers, residents, and electors of their cities. They are paid by the municipality and are elected for four-year terms as provided by city charter. They are part-time judges and may practice law outside of the courtroom.
