Montana Nineteenth Judicial District Court:
Honorable Matthew Cuffe
There are 56 District Courts in Montana. These courts are administratively structured into 22 judicial districts. The District Courts are courts of general jurisdiction and process all felony cases, all probate cases, most civil cases at law and in equity, certain special actions and proceedings, all civil actions that may result in a finding against the state for the payment of money, naturalization proceedings, various writs, and some narrowly-defined ballot issues. The District Courts also have limited appellate jurisdiction over cases arising in the Courts of Limited Jurisdiction in their respective districts as may be prescribed by law and consistent with the Constitution.
