Rule 16. Transfer of Cases from Justice to Superior Court
A justice court must transfer an eviction action to the superior court whenever the amount in controversy in the complaint or in a valid counterclaim exceeds the statutory ceiling for justice courts and whenever title or ownership of the premises becomes an issue. If a justice court transfers an eviction action to the superior court as provided by statute or rule, the procedures set forth in A.R.S. § 22-201 shall be followed. Transfers shall not delay the eviction action, and both the transferring and receiving court shall take reasonable steps to assure that no delays result from the transfer.
