Tonopah Justice Court hears felony and gross misdemeanor cases to determine whether there is enough evidence for the case to be bound over to District Court for trial. It also hears misdemeanor non-traffic cases such as; Domestic Battery, DUI, Battery, Petit Larceny and all other charges when there is an arrest made rather than a citation issued.
