City Municipal Courts


Ripley Municipal Court hears traffic and other misdemeanor violations of the Mississippi Code of 1972 Annotated as well as building/residential code and animal control violations from the City of Ripley code of Ordinances.

The Municipal Court sits in regular session on the third Thursday of each month at 9:00am at the Tippah County Courthouse in the 2nd floor courtroom.
