In common law systems, a superior court is a court of general competence which typically has unlimited jurisdiction with regard to civil and criminal legal cases. A superior court is “superior” relative to a court with limited jurisdiction, (such as a Magistrate Court) which is restricted to civil cases involving monetary amounts with a specific limit, or criminal cases involving offenses of a less serious nature. A superior court may hear appeals from lower courts.

The Superior Courtroom is located on the second floor of the Berrien County Administration Building
