Transferring Cases Out of the Mayor’s Court

It is possible to transfer your case from the Gahanna Mayor’s Court to a court of record if you and your attorney feel it is in your best interest to do so. If you decide that you want to transfer your case, or if you decide to appeal, your case will go to the Franklin County Municipal Court.
