Overview

Court Administration is the agency which interacts most with the public during their associations with the legal system.

Services
Court Administration provides case management for all court cases processed in Sherburne County District Court. Cases include criminal, civil, family, probate, juvenile, traffic, and conciliation courts. This office also collects all court fees and fines, schedules court hearings, keeps court records, and manages jury qualification and selection.

Funding & Authority
Although located in the Sherburne County Government Center, as part of the Minnesota Judicial Branch, court administration is a state funded, rather than county funded, office. Sherburne County is part of the Tenth Judicial District. The office of the district court clerk is also called court administrator by statute. The Sherburne County Court Administrator is appointed by the Judges of the Tenth Judicial District. The authority and responsibilities of the office are set forth in Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 485.

Center offers help to people who are working as their own attorney (also known as self-represented litigants).
