The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee is the federal trial court for 41 counties, spanning from Johnson County in the northeast to Lincoln County in the southwest.  The district has four divisions, with courthouses in each of those divisions, at Greeneville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Winchester. 

The Court is one of 94 federal district courts in the nation, each operating separately.  Appeals from the decisions of the Eastern District of Tennessee are heard by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, which also hears appeals from the other two district courts in Tennessee and those in Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio.  The nine districts in the states of Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan make up the Sixth Circuit.  There are 13 circuits in the United States Court system.
