About Dayton Municipal Court


Welcome to Dayton Municipal Court, a limited jurisdiction court of record that has been serving the City of Dayton, Ohio since 1914. Our mission is to provide fair and impartial justice to all individuals and legal entities who come before us. Our court handles a wide range of cases, including violations of city ordinances, traffic violations, misdemeanor offenses, preliminary hearings for felony cases, civil cases with a value of $15,000 or less, and small claims cases with a value of $6,000 or less.

We have five dedicated judges who are elected to six-year terms and are committed to upholding the rule of law and ensuring that every case is handled equitably. We also have magistrates who preside over certain civil and small claims cases, as well as provide initial appearances for defendants. To support the court's operations, we have a team of 58 court employees, including a court administrator, probation officers, secretaries, and more.

Our office hours are from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), during which we accept case filings and payments. Visit our website for online payment and case information. For any further inquiries or assistance, please refer to the provided contact information.
