The 43rd District Court Renovation was complete on June 26th 2014. All court activities that were relocated to City Hall and the Court's temporary offices are now back at the newly renovated 43rd District Court located at 305 E. Nine Mile Rd. Ferndale, MI.
Funding for this renovation has been set aside for over 12 years through a capital improvement charge on tickets issued by the 43rd District Court. As of late June, the City has saved a designated fund balance of $1,958,000 for this project, and will continue to contribute 2014 savings from the capital improvement charge as the project moves forward.
The 43rd District Court handles all traffic cases including formal and informal hearings, trials, and parking violations. The District Court has exclusive jurisdiction over the following types of cases:
- Small Claims (civil suits up to $3,000)
- Civil infractions/Traffic violations
- Civil litigations up to $25,000
- Criminal misdemeanor offenses (adult only) punishable to a year’s imprisonment
