Slide notes:The table on this slide is an example of court jurisdiction for various levels of government. For someone who lives in Cleveland, Ohio, there are three separate trial court systems. If a dispute falls under the jurisdiction of the federal courts, it would be heard in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. If a case involves a question of state law, it would be heard in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas. If the issue involves a violation of the city code, it would be heard in the Cleveland Municipal Court. The appellate court and the high court would depend on which trial court heard the case. 10
