“The mission of the Utah Courts is to provide the people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law.”
Justice Courts are established by counties and municipalities and have the authority to deal with class B and C misdemeanors, violations of ordinances, small claims, and infractions committed within their territorial jurisdiction. Justice Court jurisdictions are determined by the boundaries of local government entities such as cities or counties.
The Herriman Justice Court was established in 2006 to allow the city to adjudicate traffic, misdemeanor criminal, and small claims cases at the local level. The Court is an independent body within the judicial branch of government. The Court strives to treat all individuals courteously and with respect, and to apply the law in a fair and impartial manner.
