Overview of the Wyoming Court System

Wyoming residents face a vast array of legal issues on a daily basis. Those who need to navigate the state's legal system should be aware that there are three different courts that can hear cases in the state.

A circuit court is located in each of Wyoming's 23 counties. These courts are responsible for hearing misdemeanor criminal cases and certain civil cases. They are courts of limited jurisdiction. The district courts, which are also present in all 23 counties, are the courts of original jurisdiction for felony criminal cases, serious traffic cases and major civil issues. The district courts handle the majority of Wyoming's serious legal cases. Of course, the Wyoming Supreme Court has ultimate jurisdiction over legal matters in the state. This court is responsible for making decisions on all appeals that come up from the district courts.
