The jurisdiction of the South Dakota Federal Courts is spread out across the state. The federal court itself has headquarters in Sioux Falls and courthouse locations include Aberdeen, Pierre, and Rapid City. All appeals from the court are presented to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, except for patent claims and cases against the US government.
Currently, the Attorney’s Office for District of South Dakota employs 60 people, which include around 30 assistant United States attorneys. The attorney’s office is responsible for representing the state in all criminal and civil cases.
The official site for the South Dakota Federal Courts was created for the convenience of all residents of South Dakota. You can complete many tasks from the comfort of your home, rather than waiting in queues in the courthouse location near you. The site is updated daily so that visitors have access accurate information.
You can learn what resources you require if you plan on representing yourself without an attorney in court.

You can look up jury rules and even look up employment opportunities here.
