In Davidson County, the Circuit Court Clerk is charged with the responsibility of maintaining not only the records of the eight Circuit Courts but also the civil records of the eleven General Sessions Courts. Among the types of cases heard by the Circuit Courts are contract disputes, civil torts, condemnations, worker’s compensation claims, domestic matters and the administration of estates. The jurisdiction of the General Sessions Courts includes limited-jurisdiction torts and contracts, landlord-tenant disputes and matters involving the violation of a Metropolitan government ordinance, including traffic and codes violations. This diversity of clerical responsibilities has resulted in the operation of four distinct offices – the Circuit Court Clerk’s Office, the Probate Court Clerk’s Office, the General Sessions-Civil Division Clerk’s Office and the Traffic Violation Bureau/Traffic Warrant Division, all under the purview of the Clerk.
