Welcome to the official website for the Superior Court of Mariposa County.


Mariposa: Mother Of Counties




Mariposa County was formed in September 1850, even before California became the 31st State of the Union. Four years later the Mariposa County courthouse was built. The Court has conducted normal proceedings continuously in this courthouse ever since, the longest active period for any courthouse west of the Rocky Mountains.

Our Presiding Judge is the Honorable F. Dana Walton, and our assistant Presiding Judge is the Honorable Michael A. Fagalde.
