 Re: EMERGENCY ORDER FROM THE TEXAS SUPREME COURT REGARDING COVID19

Governor Abbot has declared a state disaster in all 254 counties in the state of Texas in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Supreme Court of Texas, pursuant to Section 22.0035(b), has ordered that all non-essential court hearings must be postponed.  This order is in effect until May 8, 2020 unless extended by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

All scheduled civil cases set for trial or hearing in the Hays County Justice Court Precinct 2, will be postponed and reset to a date after May 8, 2020.  Eviction cases have been determined to be non-essential.  Cases may be filed as usual, but non-essential will not be heard until further notice.  There also may be a delay in service.

We have intentions to stay open at this time so, there will not be a disruption in Criminal Class C citation, or traffic citation appearance dates and flow.    We are available and ready to accept emails, take phone calls, or, as always, they may be handled on the Hays County website.  All adult, (17 and over), traffic citation and Class C citations will be handled without disruption.  All cases that must be heard in front of the Judge, may be postponed, including Juvenile and Minor cases.

Thank you for your patience and understanding,

Respectfully,
Beth Smith
