Description
Collection contains records of cases tried at the Bodega Township Justice Court between 1911 and 1934. Includes the criminal justice docket.
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 1934, the Bodega Township Justice Court was one of fifteen such inferior courts in the County. The Justice Court (also known as the Bodega Township Justice's Court; more formally designated as the State of California's Justice Court for Bodega Township), had jurisdiction over Bodega Township in western Sonoma County, California, which included the towns of Bodega, Occidental, Bodega Bay and other settlements along the Pacific coast.
