Background
Prior to June 1998, California's trial courts consisted of Superior and Municipal courts, each with its own jurisdiction and with its number of judges fixed by the Legislature; prior to 1951, the Redwood Township Justice Court was one of twelve such inferior courts in the County. The Justice Court (also known as the Redwood Township Justice's Court; more formally designated as the State of California's Justice Court for Redwood Township), had jurisdiction over Redwood Township in northwestern Sonoma County, California, which included the City of Guerneville, Monte Rio, Jenner, Fort Ross and other coastal and inland settlements.
