Inderøy District Court
Inderøy District Court (Norwegian: Inderøy tingrett) was a district court serving the municipalities of Steinkjer, Inderøy, Snåsa, Mosvik, Verran, and Namdalseid in Nord-Trøndelag county, Norway. It was a court of first instance and cases decided here could be appealed to the Frostating Court of Appeal. While the court is named for the neighboring municipality of Inderøy, the court was located in the town of Steinkjer.
This court had one professional judge (the chief judge) and one deputy judge, plus an administration of five people. In 2006, the court handled 280 criminal cases and 70 civil cases plus summary procedures.
The institution was established in 1635. It is not known where the court met until 1792, when it used the Bjørken Store farm at Sandvollan in Inderøy. In 1813 it was moved to the Vika farm at Sakshaug (still in Inderøy). In 1856, the court was relocated to Steinkjer, but it is not known where in Steinkjer it was located between 1856 and 1920. In 1920, it moved into offices on Kongensgata on the north side of the town. From 1927 to 1940, it was located in Schiefloegården on the south side. This was bombed in 1940 during World War II so it was then moved to its official residence on Johan Bojers gate, then again moved to the Langhammer Villa in Tranabakken. Later, it moved into an office at Sannan, where it was until it moved to the Grand Hotel. From 1962 to 1978, the court was located at Ogndalsveien 2, in the offices of Nord-Trøndelag County Municipality. It was then moved to the head office of Nord-Trøndelag Elektrisitetsverk until 1988, when it moved to the offices of the County Governor of Nord-Trøndelag. In 1997, a new, separate building was built for the court, located next door to the County Governor's office. The new courthouse cost 16.7 million kr.
Following the court reform in 2001, it was decided to merge this court with the neighboring Stjør- and Verdal District Court, located in the town of Levanger. The merger took effect on 1 January 2011, resulting in the new "Inntrøndelag District Court".
