The Town of Colchester is located in Delaware County and it has a unique judicial system.  It is the only town court in the State that contains two Justice Courts in different locations. One court is located in Roscoe and the other is located in Downsville.

The Downsville Court is located at 72 Tannery Road and the presiding justice is Judge Arthur C. Edel.  The court is recessed off the main street and is located in a residential neighborhood.  There is limited parking behind the court building.  It is advisable that you arrive early to find a parking spot.  There is wheelchair access on the side of the building. The court is located in the same building as the government offices. 

Court tip: once you enter the building, proceed through the hallway until the building opens into a meeting area.  There will be a sign in sheet and seats for those attending court.  It is important that you sign in and wait for your case to be called.  If you find that your case is not being called, you should find the court clerk and ask for assistance.  The courtroom is located to the side in a room with a maximum capacity of 12 occupants.

The Justice Court is a court of limited jurisdiction.  It is considered a local court and has the power to adjudicate misdemeanor matters, some felony cases, and civil cases such as landlord tenant matters and small claims cases.
