Arizona Superior Court

The Superior Court of the State of Arizona is the Arizona state court of general jurisdiction.


The Constitution of Arizona provides the Superior Court with jurisdiction over:[1]


Under Article 6, section 13, of the Arizona Constitution, "[t]he superior courts provided for in this section shall constitute a single court, composed of all the duly elected or appointed judges in each of the counties of the state."[2] In this sense, the single Superior Court of the State of Arizona is divided into fifteen divisions, conterminous with the fifteen counties of Arizona. Officially, each Superior Court division is styled the "Superior Court of the State of Arizona in and for the County of (County)".[3] For example, the Superior Court division located in Coconino County is officially the, "Superior Court of the State of Arizona in and for the County of Coconino."[3] However, since each county elects the sheriff, clerk, attorney, public defender, legal defender, and attorney of its branch and owns and operates the building(s) in which it is located, they are authorized to use variations of the name in informal documents. For example, Maricopa County refers to its branch as "The Judicial Branch of Arizona in Maricopa County."
