The current court system was created by Article VI of the 1963 Michigan Constitution. Article VI, Sec. 1 provides that "The judicial power of the state is vested exclusively in one court of justice which shall be divided into one supreme court, one court of appeals, one trial court of general jurisdiction known as the circuit court, one probate court, and courts of limited jurisdiction that the legislature may establish be a two-thirds vote of the members elected to and serving in each house." The only "limited jurisdiction" court created under that provision is the district court.
