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 Jon Shindurling of Bonneville County provides judicial support to Bingham County each Thursday and on the third Monday of each month he holds law and motion day in Blackfoot.

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).

Court Services

The Clerk of the District Court performs duties prescribed in the Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure and in the rules and practices of the court. The clerk or a deputy must attend in person every term of the district court in the county to record entries, collect fees, and act as the clerical arm of the court under the instructions of the district court judge.

When a trial is transferred to a different county for a more impartial trial, the county where the action was initiated is responsible for the costs. The clerk of the receiving court certifies the charges to the auditor of the originating county who then pays trial costs.
