English term or phrase: District
United States District Court
For the District of Rhode Island.

A heading of a "Final Judgment"

How do you you translate (District) In both Instances?

I know District Court Is translated as (محكمة إقليمية)
But I am hesitant regarding the wording of the whole sentense. (محكمة الولايات المتحدة الإقليمية ) or (المحكمة الاقليمية للولايات المتحدة)

Moreover, what Is the official translation of "District of Rhode Island", If there is any?
"مقاطعة رود آيلاند"
"اقليم رود آيلاند"
"ولاية رود آيلاند"

Google Gives no hits for the first two.

Thanks for your help.

إقليمي، إقليم
Explanation:
The adjectival rendition is إقليمي, while the nominal rendition is إقليم. Thus, a district court is محكمة إقليمية, as you stated.

If "United States" is used as another modifier in the same phrase, we typically use الأمريكية in Arabic, because the "noun modifying another noun" construction does not work very well in Arabic, especially if the former is a noun phrase, like "United States." therefore, "United States District Court" can be translated المحكمة الإقليمية الأمريكية. However, it is not incorrect to use the full name, such as
محكمة الولايات المتحدة الإقليمية


Rhode Island is a state, but the expression "District of Rhode Island" does not refer to the state, but only to the court. Thus, "District of Rhode Island" is still إقليم رود أيلاند

Although the question is closed, I want to make sure to address the point raised by \"nysalem\" in his comment below:

\"District of Road Island\" means \"Court District of Rhode Island,\" not \"District Court of Rhode Island.\" A court district and a district court, though related, are not the same. We distinguish them as follows:

district court: محكمة إقليمية
court district: إقليم قضائي

Therefore, if you wish to render \"District of Rhode Island\" with an extra dose of specificity, you can use the expression:

الإقليم القضائي لرود آيلند
إقليم رود آيلند القضائي

You can, however, leave it as إقليم رود أيلاند, as everybody will know from the context that the reference is to a court district (إقليم قضائي), and not to any other kind of district.
