The city of Sherman Oaks is served by the Van Nuys Courthouse, one of the largest branches of the Los Angeles Superior Court System. In the Van Nuys court, the District Attorney’s Office handles all felony cases, while the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office handles all misdemeanor cases. The Van Nuys court covers the southern part of the San Fernando Valley. Potential jurors are pulled from the areas of North Hollywood, Burbank, Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Tarzana, Encino, Valley Glen, Valley Village, Reseda, Lake Balboa and a few other districts of the San Fernando Valley. It is not uncommon to see jurors from other parts of Los Angeles as well. The courts and prosecutors have a reputation for being a bit ”harsher” in Van Nuys than in other areas of Los Angeles including downtown Los Angeles or other more densely packed courts. Van Nuys tends to have a reputation for “doing things its own way” it has more of a small town than a big city feel. The LAPD patrols Sherman Oaks so consequently, most arrests in Sherman Oaks are made by them.
