The United States District Court for the Central District of California (in case citations, C.D.

Cases from the Central District are appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (except for patent claims and claims against the United States government under the Tucker Act, which are appealed to the Federal Circuit). Along with the Central District of Illinois, the court is the only district court referred to by the name "Central" - all other courts with similar geographical names instead use the term "Middle."
