Justice Courts determine if felony and misdemeanor matters have sufficient evidence to be turned over to District Court for prosecution.

Justice Courts hear misdemeanor non-traffic cases also as common non-criminal cases (up to $10,000), small claims (up to $10,000), general eviction proceedings, and petitions for temporary and extended protective orders (stalking and harassment).

Henderson Justice Court handles traffic tickets dispensed by the Nevada Highway Patrol, Henderson Police Department, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Union Pacific Railroad, Public Service Commission, Nevada Department of Wildlife, Motor Carrier Division, Clark County School District Police and the Clark County Park Rangers.

The Justices of the Peace are selected and work for six-year terms within the towns in which they live.
