What is the difference between a county supreme court and a regular county court?

(in the US) There is no such distinction. There are only STATE Supreme Courts (one per state) and the U.S. Supreme Court. EXCEPT in New York State, where each county outside of New York City has both a County Court and a Supreme Court (and also a Family Court and a Surrogate's Court). In most counties, the Supreme Court hears civil cases and the County Court hears civil cases, but this can vary a bit by county. See the related links for more info. While in most states the state Supreme Court is the highest state court and hears appeals from lower courts such as County Courts, the highest state court in New York is called the Court of Appeals.
