Circuit Court

Wyoming Statute: Title 5, Chapter 9, Article 1
Responsibilities and Authority:

The Circuit Courts share the nine Judicial districts that the District Courts have. The exact number of judges in each district does tend to vary depending on the case load in each district.

Experience and Skills:

A Circuit Court Judge must be able to be as impartial and nonpartisan as they can be with their decision. They must be able to deal with and understand the common man in minor cases, and be an attorney admitted to the Wyoming Bar.

Impact on Citizens:

Circuit Court Judges deal with minor cases that the average person may have to deal with, such as small claims cases, stalking, and all misdemeanors. They deal with thousands of cases a year, and are very active on the judicial scene.
