Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Collection contains records of cases tried at the Ocean Township Justice Court between 1916 and 1934. Includes Justice docket (civil cases) for the Ocean Township Justice Court in Sonoma County, California between 1916 and 1934.
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 Ocean Township Justice Court was one of fifteen such inferior courts in the County. The Justice Court (also known as the Ocean Township Justice's Court; more formally designated as the State of California's Justice Court for Ocean Township), had jurisdiction over Ocean Township in northwestern Sonoma County, California, which included the towns of Fort Ross, Plantation, Stewarts Point and other settlements along the Pacific coast.
