The mission of the Orting Municipal Court is to provide an accessible forum which guarantees the constitutional rights of a fair, speedy and courteous judicial process to each individual who is accused of committing a violation, infraction or crime, in such a manner that it preserves the dignity and rights of the defendant, as well as the citizens of the City of Orting.

The Orting Municipal Court is a court of limited jurisdiction. The Municipal Court judge is authorized by Washington State statute to preside over the following cases: civil and traffic infractions, criminal and gross misdemeanors.

The Court schedules mitigation and contested hearings, arraignments, pre-trial hearings, non-jury and jury trials, sentencing and reviews. The Court also provides related services, including legal representation for indigent persons and public defense screener services.
