Federal Courts in California

In the Federal Court system, District Courts serve as the Trial Courts.

Courts of general jurisdiction are Courts that can hear cases of any kind, including felonies. The names for Courts of general jurisdiction vary but are referred to as Superior Courts or District Courts and may be organized to hear cases within certain geographic areas, such as Merced County.
