Nevada Municipal Courts are courts in the state of Nevada that preside over misdemeanor violations of city ordinances and other violations of municipal ordinances.[1]


Civil cases heard by Municipal Courts include violations of municipal ordinances, actions to stop nuisances, some tax collection and other types of claims for less than $2500 that are brought by the city or its agents.[1]

Municipal Courts cannot hear claims related to the validity of a tax, assessment or levy, or the title to real property. Claims beyond the jurisdiction of a Municipal Court will be transferred to a court with jurisdiction over the case.[1]
