Monetary Jurisdication

Jun 2, 2014 | 2012 - 2014, News

The monetary jurisdiction of the Magistrate’s Courts increased yesterday, with the District Courts’ increasing from R100000 to R200000, and the Regional Courts’ from R300000 to R400000. This means that claims of these amounts or less need no longer be brought in the High Courts, with their concomitant expense and delay.
