District Court Mission

The Mission for Bingham County District Court is to provide prompt, courteous, accessible services dedicated to ensuring equal justice in the resolution of civil matters, criminal prosecutions, or other court related services of the Seventh Judicial District.

While Bingham County District Judge Darren B. Simpson holds court mainly at the Bingham County Courthouse he also travels to other counties in the Seventh Judicial District to preside at out-of-county cases assigned by the Administrative Judge.  Judge David C. Nye of Bannock County provides judicial support to Bingham County.

The District Court has original jurisdiction in all cases and proceedings. Certain types of civil cases and serious criminal cases must be tried in the District Court. Other civil (involving litigation under $10,000 and criminal misdemeanor proceedings) are assigned to the Magistrate's Division of the District Court, whose decisions may be appealed to the District Court. The District Court is also responsible for judicial review "of any act, order or proceeding" made by the Board of Bingham County Commissioners that aggrieves any person (Idaho Code § 31-1509). Decisions of the District Court may be appealed to the Supreme Court (Article, Section 9).
