The Bridgeport Municipal Court is a non-court of record and is the Judicial Branch of the city government. The court conducts adult and teen court hearings. It is dedicated to providing all citizens, other departments, and entities a fair, independent, and impartial forum for handling fine-only cases arising within the city limits of Bridgeport.

The Municipal Court follows the procedures set forth under Texas Law and provides all persons the right to trial by judge or jury. Although every person has the right to be represented by an attorney, most citizens who appear in the Municipal Court represent themselves.
