Non Essential Court Cases to be Postponed

According to a press release from the Cass County District Attorneys Office


Pursuant to the recommendation of the Texas Office of Court Administration, due to the Coronavirus and COVID-19 concerns, all non-essential court hearings and jury trials will be postponed until after April 1, 2020. For us, this means all defendants currently out on bond will not appear for their scheduled appearances before the County Court at Law for Cass County or for the 5th Judicial District Court for Cass County on any date between today and April 1, 2020. At this time, they will need to appear at your next scheduled appearance in May. All inmates who are currently incarcerated in jail will still appear in court on their scheduled docket dates as previously ordered.
