Welcome To Hamilton County Court of Appeals

The First District Court of Appeals is one of twelve appellate districts in the state of Ohio. Our jurisdiction consists only of Hamilton County. Article IV, section 3 of the Ohio Constitution provides the authority for this court to review appeals from Municipal and Common Pleas Courts as well as original actions in Habeas Corpus, Mandamus, Prohibition, Procedendo and Quo Warranto.

The Court consists of six judges who are all elected by popular vote, serving terms of six years. Each case on appeal is reviewed by a panel of 3 judges, one of whom is randomly assigned to write a decision after reviewing the record and the briefs filed in the case. The decision, once released, can be appealed further to the Ohio Supreme Court.

This court and its personnel are committed to serving the citizens of Hamilton County, Ohio in an open, orderly, and efficient manner.
