Municipal Court

We are an independent branch of government constitutionally entrusted with the fair and just resolution of disputes
in order to preserve the rule of law and to protect the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United State and this State.

The Municipal Court is a court of limited jurisdiction with responsibility of adjudicating motor vehicle, parking, and some criminal offenses as well as municipal ordinance violations.  The municipal court usually only hears cases where the offense has occurred within its boundaries.  Norwood Municipal Court meets on the first and third Wednesday of the month. The court may also schedule special sessions when needed.
