The Municipal Court's mission is to ensure that individuals appearing before the court or seeking services from the court are treated equally, impartially, and fairly.  The City Courts Department will ensure that all matters docketed in the courts are processed and scheduled for hearing in an expeditious manner. The mission of the Justice Courts in Pinal County is to administer justice efficiently, according to law, with respect and fairness to all parties.

The Judges address the cases and render decisions that are fair to all parties, based upon the evidence. The City of Eloy Magistrate Court hears civil and criminal matters, including orders of protection.

This Municipal Court has jurisdiction over violations of municipal ordinances and criminal misdemeanor offenses occurring within the city's police jurisdiction.

The Justice of the Peace Court of Pinal County is a court of limited jurisdiction and hear both civil and criminal cases. The Justice Court are non-record courts meaning they are not required to make a permanent record of all proceedings; however, records are made in some instances. Civil jurisdiction is limited to $10,000.00, and criminal jurisdiction is limited to petty offenses and misdemeanors punishable by a fine not exceeding $2,500--exclusive of surcharges-- or imprisonment in the county jail not to exceed six months, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

Justice Courts have jurisdiction in cases of forcible entry and detainer where the judgment is not over the $10,000.00. The Justice Court also hears matters regarding possession of, but not title to, real property. State law provides for a special small claims procedure in the Justice Court for claims not in excess of $2,500. This special procedure permits citizens involved in small lawsuits to resolve their disputes without the use of lawyers and permits the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court to appoint special hearing officers in the Justice Court to decide these cases. In cases of domestic violence and harassment, the Justice Court may issue restraining orders. In felony matters, the court has authority to issue search warrants.
