The district court of Werneck was a Bavarian district court of the older order that existed from 1804 to 1879 and was based in Werneck in what is now the district of Schweinfurt . In the Kingdom of Bavaria , the regional courts were judicial and administrative authorities, which were replaced in administrative matters by the district offices in 1862 and in legal matters by the local courts in 1879 .
