|General Sessions Court|
Gen Sessions Judge
General Sessions Court is often the public's first introduction to the judicial system because of its broad range of jurisdiction. Unlike Circuit Court this court is not a court of record. The General Sessions Court Clerks office is responsible for filing all detainer warrants, orders of protection, evictions and small claims lawsuits. Lawsuits filed in General Sessions cannot be more than $15,000.00. The clerks office also processes and maintains all the records on all state warrants, traffic citations, misdemeanor court hearings and felony preliminary court hearings. We have the responsibility for collecting, receipting and accounting for all cost, fines and restitution. This office is a fee office and we collect revenue which is disbursed to various state and county agencies on a monthly basis.
