United States District & Bankruptcy Courts
Welcome

The District of Idaho Clerk of Court, Stephen W. Kenyon, welcomes you to the U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts for the District of Idaho.  We are one of 15 districts in the Ninth Circuit which spans 9 western states. Idaho is proud to be one of only six consolidated District and Bankruptcy Clerks' Offices within the federal judiciary.

The U.S. Courts for the District of Idaho was created with statehood in 1890. Our offices are located in Boise, Coeur d'Alene, and Pocatello.  

We trust this website will give some insight into the functions of the U.S. Courts and how the Clerk's Office can better serve the people of the State of Idaho.
