Denver, Colorado courthouses
As the state capitol and largest city, Denver, Colorado is home to several courthouses from local to federal jurisdiction.
Denver is home to two federal courts: the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado and the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. The federal district court is the trial court for the federal judiciary. It hears criminal and civil cases filed under federal jurisdiction within the entire state of Colorado. The Tenth Circuit is the federal appellate court that hears appeals from district courts within its jurisdiction, which includes Colorado. The District Court operates out of several courthouses in Colorado, including the Alfred A. Arraj Courthouse and the Byron G. Rogers Courthouse in Denver. The Tenth Circuit’s courthouse in Colorado is the Byron G. Rogers Courthouse. Both federal courthouses are minutes away from the Front Range Injury Attorneys office on Welton Street.
Denver, Colorado is also home to several state, county and city courts within the Colorado judiciary. The city is home to the Colorado Supreme Court, the highest court under Colorado law and its highest appellate court. The supreme court is located in the Ralph L. Carr Justice Center in Denver. Located in the same building is the Colorado Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals is the intermediate appellate court. It hears most appeals from trial and administrative courts before the Colorado Supreme Court.
Below the appellate courts under Colorado law exist the district courts. The Colorado judiciary is divided into twenty-two districts which may include multiple counties. For Denver, the 2nd Judicial District includes only the City and County of Denver. Judicial districts include both county and district courts. County courts hear lower level criminal cases and smaller civil lawsuits. Every county in Colorado has a county court. District courts hear family law cases, juvenile cases, probate, more severe criminal cases and larger civil lawsuits.
Denver is unique from the rest of the state due to its population size and integrated county and city government. Denver has a county court, general district court, probate court and juvenile court. It is the only district in Colorado with separate juvenile and probate district courts. These courts are divided between the City and County of Denver Municipal Building and the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse, both in downtown Denver. Because the Denver city and county governments are unified, the Denver County Court also hears municipal violations such as traffic tickets like careless driving.
In addition to courts within the state and city judiciaries, Denver is also home to several state and city administrative courts. As the state capitol, it is home to several state agencies and their administrative courts. These courts oversee hearings on specific matters regulated to them under state and city law, such as driver’s license revocations and unemployment insurance claims.
