What is the difference between Municipal Court and District Court?
The District Judge is an elected position responsible for the adjudication of all criminal and civil cases. This program provides a forum for the prompt resolution of cases filed. The court plans to continue improving its collections on fines and costs assessed and to set cases for trial within 60 days after the arraignment date. In 2001, Amendment 3 was passed by Arkansas voters. This Constitutional Amendment has effected the court. The first change was that all Municipal Courts became District Courts. This name change became effective on July 1, 2001. Other changes will depend on the outcome of the future Legislative Sessions.
