Beginning October 2021, the Supreme Court of Texas (Emergency Order 43), the Office of Court Administration and the regional Administrative Judge have permitted some hearings and trials in justice courts to be conducted in-person while others may be conducted virtually by Zoom. It is important that you check-in on or before your designated time to ensure your timely participation. For virtual hearings please make sure you are familiar with using Zoom technology and e-file or email file exhibits at least 3 business days before your hearing. Your cooperation during these difficult times is greatly appreciated. For these in person hearings please wear a mask to be permitted to enter the courthouse and allow sufficient time for screening before your court time.
