Fallsburg Town Court is a local court of jurisdiction located in Sullivan County.  Each year, it adjudicates a myriad of civil, criminal, and traffic matters.  These cases are fall within the court’s jurisdiction because the case in controversy is derived from an issue occurring with the town. 

Not every matter occurring in the town can be heard in this court.  For example, civil cases are limited up to $3,000.00 in controversy with limited exceptions.  Criminal cases are mostly held for misdemeanor and offenses.  Felony cases are heard in County Court.  This court maintains jurisdiction over all traffic tickets other than felony traffic tickets.
