The Magistrate's Court, authorized by Talossan stautory law 39RZ18, consists of not less than two and no more than three Magistrates for the trial of all cases arising under the laws of the Kingdom of Talossa, both civil and criminal. Since Article XVI, Section 2 of the Organic Law mandates that all courts must have an odd number of judges, though, this means that exactly three magistrates must sit on the court. As with the Uppermost Court, members of the Magistrate's Court are nominated by a resolution of the Ziu and this nomination must be approved by the Crown.

Decisions of the Magistrate's Court may be appealed to the Uppermost Court.
