If your case was scheduled from March 16, 2020 through August 15, 2020, resets will be given in person only at the Herbert W. Gee Courthouse located at 1400 Lubbock on the following Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m:

Following Mayor Sylvester Turner’s and CDC guidelines to protect the public and MCD staff from the spread of COVID-19, members of the public will be required to wear face masks/facial coverings and have their temperature taken. If the temperature is over 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, the individual will not be allowed to enter the Municipal Courthouse. Members of the public should contact a health care provider and not come to court if they are experiencing symptoms similar to COVID-19. Once cleared by a physician, individuals may come to 1400 Lubbock to speak with an Annex Judge to reset a case.
