Court InformationTop

HISD has announced that schools are closed tomorrow 11/28/22 because of the boil water notice issued by the City of Houston.

In the spirit of the court’s inclement weather policy (in place for unexpected school closures), the 245th District Court will be closed tomorrow save and except for any SIJS cases set for trial, which may proceed to final trial by Zoom as scheduled unless otherwise requested by counsel.

If a respondent was ordered to appear by Zoom and the parties cannot agree on a new reset date and time, please log in to your setting and the court will assign you a new date and time.

The Court Coordinator will reach out to reschedule any preferentially set matters to the next available date and to provide the foregoing information.
