January 11, 2021 Update:
In December, 2020 the Office of Court Administration required all Local Administrative Judges and Regional Presiding Judges to recertify existing court operating plans with local health officials by January 11, 2021 and to submit such recertified plans to the OCA. On January 11, 2021 Tarrant County courts were notified that all court operating plans were denied recertification because the local pandemic conditions are not currently conducive to in person proceedings under the precautions and protocols contained in the previously submitted in person operating plan. With recertification denied, all Tarrant County courts remain closed for in person proceedings. It is the hope of local health officials to allow in person proceedings starting March 1, 2021.
For the present time, the 67th District Court continues to conduct its hearings by Zoom or telephone conferencing. Additionally, the Court is reviewing and ruling on motions presented to it by submission only.
This Court has remained open throughout all of the pandemic and will remain open. All court personnel (judge, coordinator and reporter) have chosen to work daily at the courthouse. However, with the recent increase in virus case numbers, the judge has asked its staff to work now full time from home. Please be advised that this Court’s ability to answer telephone calls promptly is limited and your call will roll over to voicemail which will be regularly checked. Elaine Langford, the Court’s Coordinator, does prefer email communication instead of phone. Live hearings will be limited. In summary, this Court’s successful efforts in promptly and efficiently handling matters for attorneys and litigants will now be a little less prompt. Be patient, please.
Zoom (https://www.zoom.us/) hearings are still open to the public through the Court’s YouTube channel found at 67th District Court YouTube Channel .
The Court appreciates your consideration and patience. Please contact this Court email or telephone 817-884-1452 with any questions or concerns. We are all in this together. Stay Healthy!
