The subject matter jurisdiction of a court is its ability to hear and decide the specific kinds of cases. Municipal courts have jurisdiction in misdemeanor criminal cases where the maximum sentence is one year in jail and a fine of not more than $2,500.00. Municipal courts also handle the initial stages of felony proceedings prior to trial.

In civil matters this jurisdiction is limited to cases where the monetary claim requested by either party is not more than $15,000.

Jury trials are held upon request in all criminal cases except for minor misdemeanors and in all civil cases.


More serious criminal matters are handled in the Felony Courtroom on the 7th floor. Individuals charged with felonies are arraigned at the Summit County Jail by television. Special equipment is set up so that the defendant can see and hear the judge in the courtroom by a monitor and the judge can see and hear the defendant.

Misdemeanor / Traffic Violations

Persons who receive a traffic ticket may plead guilty and pay the citation without a court appearance unless a court appearance is mandated by the officer on the ticket. Tickets may be paid by mail or in person at the Traffic Violations Bureau located in the Lobby (1st Floor) of the Harold K. Stubbs Justice Center. Persons who wish to plead not guilty to the charge or charges or plead guilty but explain the circumstances, should appear in court on the date of appearance indicated on the citation. If the citation is a minor misdemeanor, persons should call the Minor Misdemeanor Violations Bureau.

  • Documents of proof for compliance of judicial order or sentence
  • Adequate funds to pay fines and costs
How long should I plan to be in court?

Can I ask the City for certain information that I will need for trial?

What if I cannot come to court on the day scheduled for trial?

(1) Each exhibit to a facsimile produced document that cannot be accurately transmitted via facsimile transmission for any reason shall be replaced by an insert page describing the exhibit and why it is missing. Unless the court otherwise orders, the missing exhibit shall be filed with the court, as a separate document, not later than five (5) court days following the filing of the facsimile document. The Court may strike any document or exhibit, or both, if missing exhibits are not filed as required by this section.
(2)Any exhibit filed pursuant to Section 6.01 shall include a cover sheet containing the caption of the case that sets forth the name of the court, title of the case, the case number, name of the judge and the title of the exhibit being filed (e.g., Plaintiff’s Notice of Filing Exhibit “X” to Plaintiff’s Response to Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss). The exhibit and cover sheet shall be signed and served in conformance with the rules governing the signing and service of pleadings in this Court. [See Appendix “G” for Sample Notice of Filing an Exhibit].
(1) Subject to the provisions of these rules, all documents sent by fax and accepted by the clerk shall be considered filed with the clerk as of the date and time the clerk time-stamps the document received, as opposed to the date and time of the fax transmission. The office of the clerk will be open to receive facsimile transmission of documents on the same days and at the same time the court is regularly open for business. If a fax is transmitted and received after the close of the Clerk’s office, it will be filed the next day the Clerk’s office is open.
(2) Fax filings may not be sent directly to the court for filing but may only be transmitted only through the facsimile equipment operated by the clerk of courts.
(3) The clerk may, but is not required to, acknowledge receipt of a facsimile transmission.
(4) The risks of transmitting a document by fax to the clerk of courts shall be borne entirely by the sending party.The sending party is urged to verify receipt by the clerk of a fax filing through whatever technological means are available.
RULE No. 8
   Where an answer or a motion is filed in a civil case, other than a motion for default judgment, or in a criminal or traffic case a motion or “not guilty” plea is entered, the same shall be assigned immediately, by Case Management, by lot, to a judge, which judge shall be responsible for the determination of every issue and proceeding in the case until its termination or reassignment.
RULE No. 9
   The judge assigned to a case shall be responsible for the determination of every issue and proceeding in that case until its termination. Emergency orders and orders as of right, including requests for continuance, shall be submitted to the judge to whom the case is assigned. If the assigned judge is unavailable, the matter may be submitted to and determined by the Presiding Judge, if in the opinion of the Presiding Judge undue prejudice would be caused by not considering the matter.
RULE No. 10
(A) Related Case.
   If a case assigned under SMCR No. 8.1 is found to be related to another case(s), or if there is a companion case(s) which presents substantially the same issues for determination, such fact shall be called to the attention of the Presiding Judge by submitting a related case transfer entry, signed by the transferring judge and the transferee judge. If the related case transfer entry has been approved by the transferor and the transferee judge, the Presiding Judge shall approve the same and reassign such case(s) to the transferee judge. The Presiding Judge may transfer the case without the approval of the transferee judge when he finds such transfer appropriate.
B) Disqualification.
   If, for any reason, a judge is disqualified to hear an assigned case, that judge shall sign and submit a case transfer entry to the Presiding Judge. If approved by the Presiding Judge, a new lot shall be drawn and that case(s) shall be assigned to another judge. The transferring judge shall then receive the next case that would have been assigned by lot to the transferee judge.
(C) Illness or Absence.
   In the event of the protracted illness of a judge, or the unduly prolonged time for trial of a case(s) assigned to a judge, the Presiding Judge may order the reassignment of cases assigned to that judge to another judge or to a visiting judge, as the Presiding Judge may determine.
(D) General.
   The Presiding Judge may reassign any case in the furtherance of justice. A judge appointed or elected to succeed another shall have the cases assigned to his predecessor. When there is a transfer of a case, the case file and the other records shall be changed to reflect the reassignment to the transferee judge.
