From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Maine Superior Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction in the Maine state court system.

All state jury trials are held in the Superior Court. The court is located in each of Maine's 16 counties (with two locations in Aroostook County). The Court consists of 17 justices who all have statewide jurisdiction and travel to the different courthouses to hold court.[1] Justices are nominated by the Governor and confirmed by the Maine Senate and are appointed to seven-year terms.[2]
