Located on Rowe Boulevard, the District 7 Court, serving Anne Arundel County, is in close proximity to both the U.S. Naval Academy and the State Department of Natural Resources.
The Distric Court of Maryland was first established in 1971 as the result of an ammendment to the state constitution. It is fully funded by the state. Cases tried in the District Court include landlord-tenant disputes, motor vehicle violations, misdemeanors and, in some instances, felonies.
