About Connecticut Courts:
In Connecticut, there are two judicial systems. One is the state system, established under the the state constitution; the other is
the federal system, established under the United States Constitution. Connecticut courts are courts of general jurisdiction. These
courts handle most criminal and civil matters, including contracts, personal injury cases, dissolution of marriage, etc. In some
cases, decisions of Connecticut Courts may be appealed to the United States Supreme Court.
Federal courts have jurisdiction over matters involving federal law, and over cases between two states or the citizens of two
different states, cases between a state and a foreign state, maritime cases, and cases affecting diplomatic personnel.
Connecticut has four different types of courts;
The Connecticut Supreme Court,
Connecticut Appellate Court,
Connecticut Probate Court System and
Connecticut Superior Court.
