mencing June, 1959, $15,000.. Circuit judges in Milwaukee County
must be paid an additional $1,000 by the county. All of the counties
including Milwaukee are authorized to pay an additional amount
up to $3,000. The salaries of circuit-court reporters and the travel-
ing expenses of the judges and reporters are paid by the state.
   The circuit court holds court at least once each year in every
county in the circuit. The terms of circuit court are prescribed in
the statutes and vary in number and length according to the usual
business to come before the circuit court in the county.
   The circuit court has both criminal and civil jurisdiction in all
actions-unless an exclusive jurisdiction is given to some other court.
It has concurrent jurisdiction with the county courts in some areas
including matters relating to marriage. Cases may be transferred
between the circuit and the county court in actions where they have
concurrent jurisdiction. There is some specialization of jurisdiction
in the branches of circuit court of Milwaukee County.
   The circuit court also sits as an appellate court, hearing some
appeals from county courts and from municipal justice and justice
of peace courts. Appeals from decisions of the circuit court go
directly to the Supreme Court.
