Unlike other Michigan communities, all five of the “pointes” operate through their own individual Municipal Courts. Therefore, if you were arrested in Grosse Pointe Farms for domestic violence, drug or DUI charge, your case would be handled through the Grosse Pointe Farms Municipal Court.
The Grosse Pointe Farms Municipal Court is located on the second floor of City Hall at 90 Kerby Rd, Grosse Pointe Farms, MI 48236. The Honorable Matthew Rumora currently presides over this Municipal Court, along with the Grosse Pointe Shores Municipal Court.
