The Montana judicial system is unusual. Unlike most states and the federal government, there is no intermediate appellate court; the Supreme Court serves as the state appellate court. Directly under the Supreme Court, the 56 district courts serve as major trial courts with civil and criminal jurisdiction including debts, divorces, guardianships, juvenile matters, naturalizations, and probate. Limited jurisdiction courts include worker’s compensation, water, justice, municipal, and city courts, with administration by the Montana Administrative Office of Courts.
