Mississippi's State Courtsystem includes 82 Justice Courts, which hear small claims cases (cases with a value less than $3,500,) and preliminary misdemeanor hearings. Mississippi also has 226 Municipal Courts located in its cities, and these also handle preliminary misdemeanor hearings as well as traffic and ordinance cases. Mississippi's Chancery Courts and County Courts share jurisdiction over many types of civil cases including those involving torts, contracts, real property, domestic relations and mental health, as well as juvenile matters. County Courts also hear appeals from Justice and Municipal Courts. Mississippi's 22 districts each have at least one District Court that handles some tort and real property cases, criminal cases, and civil appeals. The Mississippi Court of Appeals hears civil, criminal and administrative agency appeals, and the state's highest court, the Mississippi Supreme Court.
