FAQs

Q:
What about criminal cases?
A:
Justice Courts have jurisdiction of:
  • Traffic offenses
  • Class C misdemeanors (punishable by fines only up to $500)
  • Criminal cases punishable by fine only.
Q:
"I just want to talk to the Judge..."
A:

The code of Judicial Conduct further prohibits the Justice of the Peace from engaging in communications concerning the merits of a pending judicial proceeding, or the merits of an impending claim or dispute. This means a judge can only discuss matters when all parties to a lawsuit are present during the discussions. Most people understand this when they consider how they would feel about the judge discussing their case with the other side without their knowledge or consent.
