IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION: The 310th will be open on Tues., Nov. 29, 2022, even though HISD will be closed again. If anyone needs to appear via Zoom instead of in-person, that will be approved. The 310th will be open on 11/28/22 (unless the building closes) but since HISD has closed due to the City of Houston's Boil Water Notice, resets will be granted if requested and no defaults will proceed. Cases that need a reset will be put on the trial docket for 12/19/2022 @ 10:00 a.m. unless other arrangements have been made through the Court Coordinator.
