RE: Updated Coronavirus Court Protocol for Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4

This protocol is based on the Office of Court Administration’s “Updated Guidance #1 on Court Procedures for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID -19).

In the interest of health and public safety, JP 4 has cancelled all jury service for the remainder of March and April 2020 effective Monday, March 16, 2020. Jurors should not report. In addition, all scheduled court proceedings prior to March 31, 2020 except for “essential court proceedings” will be reset to another date after May 8, 2020. No eviction settings will be held until after May 8, 2020 in JP 4. Eviction filings will be accepted online, by mail, or fax but service will be delayed for public safety. For traffic, Class C citations with an appearance date prior to May 8, 2020, the appearance date will be extended. All warrants for misdemeanor Class C offenses are temporarily suspended until May 8, 2020.

All cases from the cancelled dockets will be reset by the court and all parties will be notified of each new court date by mail. Please contact the court with any questions or request for appointments if a face to face interaction is necessary at 979-361-4402 or . Our team is here to assist you and we thank you for your patience!

As of Monday, March 16, 2020, JP 4 will no longer accept paper filings in person from attorneys. The court encourages all other petitioners that can, send their petition by electronic filing, e-mailing, or faxing since the Coronavirus poses a serious health threat to the public and to our personnel. I believe this to be a reasonable restriction under the present circumstances. I urge you to use the CDC as your primary source of information about the virus.  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/

RE: Póliza actualizado Del Tribunal sobre Coronavirus para la Jueza de Paz, Precinto 4

Esta póliza se basa en la “Guía actualizada #1 de la Oficina de administración de la Corte sobre Procedimientos para el Nuevo Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).” El tribunal volverá a evaluar las circunstancias hacia fines de abril 2020 y lo mantendrá informado.

En interés de la salud y la seguridad pública, JP 4 ha cancelado todos los servicios de jurado por el resto de marzo y abril del 2020 efectivo el lunes 16 de marzo del 2020. Los miembros del jurado no deben reportar. Adicionalmente, todos los procedimientos judiciales programados antes del 8 de mayo del 2020, excepto los “procedimientos judiciales esenciales,” se restablecerán a otra fecha posterior al 31 de marzo del 2020. No se llevaran a cabo los desalojos hasta después del 8 de mayo del 2020 en JP 4. Las solicitudes de desalojo se aceptaran en línea, pero el servicio se retrasara para proteger a nuestros agentes. Para infracciones de trafico Clase C con una fecha de comparecencia anterior del 8 de mayo del 2020, la fecha de comparecencia se extenderá. Todas las órdenes de arresto por delitos menores de trafico Clase C se suspenden temporalmente hasta el 8 de mayo de 2020.

Todos los casos de los expedientes cancelados serán restablecidos por el tribunal y todas las personas serán notificadas de cada nueva fecha del tribunal por correo. Comuníquese con la corte si tiene alguna pregunta o si necesita venir en persona para hacer cita al 979-361-4402 o . Nuestro personal está aquí para ayudarlo y le agradecemos su paciencia.

A partir del lunes 16 de marzo del 2020, JP 4 ya no aceptaremos casos en papel por los abogados en persona. Todos los alegatos deben enviarse por archivo electrónico, correo electrónico o fax, ya que el Coronavirus representa una grave amenaza para la salud del público y de nuestro personal. Creo que esta es una restricción razonable en las circunstancias actuales. Le insisto a que use el CDC como su fuente principal de información sobre el virus. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/
