How many courts does Ohio have?

The short answer is that it is hard to say for sure. Ohio has both federal courts and state/local courts. There are many different types of state and local courts in Ohio, including Courts of Common Pleas, County Courts, Municipal Courts, Mayor's Courts, and the Court of Claims, each with different jurisdiction. Generally, courts in Ohio are separated by county and each county has a different number of courts mostly depending on population size. Many Courts of Common Pleas have separate divisions for different types of cases, and many small towns and villages have their own Mayor's Courts, so it is hard to say exactly how many courts there are in Ohio. There are at least 509 state and local courts in Ohio, but that number does not include federal courts and may not include some mayors' courts. See the related link for information regarding specific courts in Ohio.
