The Bernalillo Metropolitan Court is the only Metropolitan Court in New Mexico. It is very similar to the Magistrate Courts, but is located specifically in Bernalillo County and has jurisdiction over cases including landlord-tenant rights, traffic violations, and preliminary felony hearings.[1] The court was established in 1980 to combine the jurisdiction of the Albuquerque Municipal Court, Bernalillo County Magistrate Court and Small Claims Court.[2]


The court has 19 judges; 16 serve the Criminal Division and 3 are in the Civil Division.[2]
