In an effort to comply with the most recent recommendations of the Office of Court Administration during this time, all dockets in the 149th District Court will be restructured as follows:
Civil Ancillary Matters– those currently set will be heard by submission on the date and time scheduled. If there is a special need for a hearing, please contact our office to determine the availability of a remote setting. For future settings please contact our office.
Civil Trial Docket-to date all jury trials have been cancelled until the end of April. At that time we will reevaluate the situation regarding dates for jury trials. Ms. Brooks will be contacting you regarding future setting dates.
Criminal pretrial/mrp dockets-If your client is on bond, please get with Ms. Damian and reset your matter. If your client is in jail, we will expect your appearance at the docket unless you notify us there is a problem with your ability to attend.
Criminal trials-all jury trials have been cancelled until the end of April. At that time we will reevaluate the situation regarding dates for jury trials. Ms. Damian will be contacting you regarding those resets.
We are aware that there are circumstances where a court appearance is necessary for those incarcerated. In that regard the District Courts will rotate small jail dockets each morning beginning the first week of April. The 149th will hear those issues on Thursday morning of each week at 9:00 a.m. Please contact Ms. Damian for setting any necessary cases on that docket.
It is our desire to continue to serve the citizens of Brazoria County in the safest way possible. If you have a question we have not addressed please let us know.
