REF: Emergency Order from the Texas Supreme Court regarding COVID-19
Governor Abbot has declared a state disaster in all 254 counties in the state of Texas in response to the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. Pursuant to Section 22.0035(b) of the Texas Government Code, the Supreme Court has ordered that all non-essential court hearings may… and must be postponed to avoid risk to court staff, parties, attorneys, jurors and the public. This order is in effect until May 8, 2020, unless extended by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Texas.
For this reason, all scheduled cases set for trial or hearing in the Hays County Justice Court, Pct. 1-2, will be postponed and reset to a date after May 8, 2020. No eviction settings will be heard until after May 8, 2020. All appearance dates for class C misdemeanor violations or traffic citations will be extended. No warrants for failure to appear for citations will be issued until after June 8, 2020.
