Public Finance Court
Explanation:
These are the courts used for deciding cases when the defendant is the government. I've found Finance and Finances (many more examples for Finance, in singular). Look into these example:

The matter, John, is that we live different realities, reason why it sounds weird to your ears. Who decides the suits when the Government is the defendant? In our environment these are the courts to do it.
