Jurisdiction

For Local Questions, call 256-386-8511.

The Circuit Court shall have exclusive original jurisdiction of all civil actions in which the matter in controversy exceeds ten thousand dollars ($10,000, exclusive of interest and costs, and shall exercise original jurisdiction concurrent with the District Court in all civil actions in which the matter in controversy exceeds three thousand ($3,000), exclusive of interests and costs.

Circuit Court also has the authority to hear cases appealed from any courts of limited jurisdiction (i.e. Municipal Courts, Probate Courts and District Courts). These cases will be tried de novo - meaning the case will be tried again and may be tried with or without a jury.
