Small claims are filed in the court in your state where traffic matters are heard. The name of this court varies by state. In general, you must file your small claim in the court which has jurisdiction over the defendant's place of residence. However, if the small claim was the result of an automobile accident, the claim must be filed in the district where the accident occurred. And if the small claim was the result of a tenancy, it must be filed in the district where the rented property is located.

If you have questions about the proper jurisdiction for a small claim, contact your local traffic court. They will be able to either help you or direct you to the court who can.

The great majority of midemeanor cases in Virginia are heard in General District Court. However, if the misdemeanor is a "lesser included offense" in a felony charge, it will be heard in Circuit Court as part of the felony case. If the offense is a juvenile delinquency offense that would be considered a misdemeanor if committed by an adult, it will be heard in Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.

Is the US Court of Federal Claims an Article III court?

No. The US Court of Federal Claims is an Article I court, which makes it part of the Legislative Branch of government rather than the Judicial Branch. Congress established the US Court of Federal Claims in 1855 to hear many types of cases involving monetary claims against the United States. According to US Code (28 USC § 1491), the jurisdiction of the Court "is over claims for just compensation for the taking of private property, refund of federal taxes, military and civilian pay and allowances, and damages for breaches of contracts with the government." The Court is also authorized to consider cases against the US involving copyright and patent infringement, bid protests for government contracts, disputes from Native American Nations, and cases involving Vaccine Injury. The US Court of Federal Claims also serves the unique function of issuing advisory opinions to Congress, on request, regarding questions involving bills and resolutions.
