COMMENTS SOUGHT ON REVISED DISTRICT COURT LOCAL RULES

The Travis County Civil District Judges’ committee on revisions to the Local Rules is distributing these Draft Revised Local Rules and a set of redlines to members of the Austin Bar Association. The committee has opened a comment period for the month of November.

During this month, please send any comments on these draft revisions to Judge Jan Soifer, chair of the committee, jan.soifer@traviscountytx.gov, with the subject line, “Comments on revised Local Rules.”

After considering the comments, the Civil District Judges will finalize a set of revised Local Rules and forward it to the Texas Supreme Court for approval.

The current District Court Local Rules (effective June 2, 2014) are available at https://www.traviscountytx.gov/courts/files/civil-district.
