Geric Tipsword - The choice for the 280th District Court


What is the purpose of the 280th District Court?  The 280th District Court is the court of original jurisdiction for protective orders.  It serves ALL of Harris County.

The words "District Court" can be misleading. The name District Court is provided by the Texas State Constitution. A District Court can serve a single county or multiple counties.  In Harris County, District Courts serve the entire county and ANY citizen of Harris County will be able to vote for the 280th District Court.

The 280th was created in 2009 as the only court in Texas to be dedicated to domestic violence cases.  I am running for the 280th because I want to be the person who leads this court into the future.  I do not believe that this court's primary mission should be changed.  I do believe that this court has the capability to take on a greater workload.  While I want to work in conjunction with other family court judges to see what can be done to help spread the work load, I believe that the citizens of Harris County MUST have immediate access to a court to protect them during their most desperate times.
