per municipal court ho trovato tribunale/corte municipale, secondo voi "giudice municipale" va bene? Ma che casi tratta poi questo giudice/tribunale?

ma non so a che cosa corrisponda in Italia
A municipal court is a trial court that deals exclusively with cases involving city ordinance violations. Offenses brought before a municipal court are those that occur within the limits of the municipality. Examples of violations handled in municipal court are: traffic, assault and battery, disorderly conduct, vandalism, loitering, theft, shoplifting, building code, health code, and drunken driving. Characteristics of a municipal court include the following:
n A sentence to pay monetary forfeitures to the City is the primary sentence imposed on a guilty defendant. In addition, a municipal judge may require a defendant’s participation in one of several community service or educational programs. If a defendant does not pay the forfeiture, a judge may suspend the defendant’s driving privileges or put him or her in jail.
n Municipal court records are public records. This means that with the exception of juvenile cases, the records of all municipal court proceedings are accessible to everyone.
n All actions of the municipal court are appealable. Both the defendant and the City Attorney have the right to appeal the decision of the judge. Appeals are heard at the Circuit Court.
