Services » Litigation » The High Court
It is open to all litigants to commence any action in the High Court.
However, taking a case in the High Court is a costly and timely course of action. Most importantly, litigants will potentially find themselves at a loss financially if they take an action in the High Court, even if they succeed, if the value of the award they receive falls under the monetary jurisdiction of the Circuit or District Court. The monetary limitation referred to being anything over €75,000.00.
Therefore, unless a litigant is very confident that their claim is worth in excess of €75,000.00 they ought to consider dropping the weaker elements of their claim and bringing their action in the Circuit Court.
