Key Topics

  • The Municipal Court is the judicial branch of Lake Oswego city government. It has jurisdiction over all violations of city and state laws committed within city limits other than felonies.  The court does not handle civil or small claims cases.

  • If you have received a citation for a traffic or ordinance violation, one of the first things to do is check the court date at the bottom on the front of the citation.   You can appear in court on that date, plead no contest and have a fine assessed or plead not guilty and have a trial set at a later time.
