Limited action civil cases are heard in Division 61, a high volume forum with rights of appeal and trial de novo (heard "anew" as if the first trial had not occurred). Other than matters of contract, the jurisdictional limit for limited action cases is $25,000.

Most of the cases are collection or landlord/tenant matters. For more detailed information please read Local Court Rule 16.

For instructions and details about electronic filings, fees and journal entries, please read our local policies.
