Connecticut Courthouses

The Civil Division of the Connecticut Judicial Branch hears cases in which someone is being sued to protect civil, personal or property rights. Typical cases include automobile or personal accidents, landlord-tenant disputes, product or professional liability disputes, and disputed contracts.

In most civil cases, the accusing party (the plaintiff) wants money damages (judgment or award) from the other party (the defendant). Cases may be decided by a judge, a jury or by a non-judicial officer, depending on the nature of the claim and the preference of the parties.

The Superior Court has 13 judicial districts which have at least one courthouse and one geographical area court. Civil cases, administrative appeals, family matters, and serious criminal offenses are generally heard in a judicial district courthouse. All criminal arraignments, misdemeanors, felonies, and motor vehicle violations that require a court appearance are heard in one of the 20 geographical area courts.
