Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court is proud to join with the citizens
we serve in celebrating Black History Month. Throughout the month of
February, we will spotlight some of the African-Americans who have
furthered the causes of justice and diversity in Cuyahoga County.
Each week we will post a new profile, beginning with former Judge
Stephanie Tubbs Jones.
Week 1: Stephanie Tubbs Jones
Week 2: Judge Perry B. Jackson
Week 3: Judge Lillian Burke
Week 4: Judge Jean Murrell Capers
Also, on the first floor of the Justice Center, we are presenting a
display of artwork from students in the Shaker Heights City Schools.
If you are in the Justice Center, please take a moment to view the
works by these talented young artists.
The General Division | (216) 443-8560
Unlike the other divisions, judges in the General Division have what is called "general
jurisdiction" to hear civil and criminal cases. Under Ohio law Municipal courts
have jurisdiction to hear civil cases with a value of up to $15,000.00; Common Pleas
civil jurisdiction has no upper limit. Criminal jurisdiction includes all crimes
defined by statute as felonies, as well as other certain criminal offenses.
Court Administrator: Gregory M. Popovich
