General District Court
General District CourtThere are three types of General District Court cases:

  • Civil cases for lawsuits involving up to $25,000
  • Criminal cases in which a person is charged with a misdemeanor
  • Traffic cases in which a person is charged with a traffic offense, usually an infraction, which is generally punishable by a fine of not more than $250.

 Unlike the Circuit Court, the General District Court does not conduct jury trials. All cases are heard by a judge and the penalties are set by the Code of Virginia.
