Motions Practice

All requests to the Court must be made in writing, and they must be filed with proposed orders setting hearing and granting relief. A party opposing the request must also file a response/objection and submit a proposed order denying relief. If the request is to reset a hearing, regardless of whether it is agreed, such a request must be accompanied by a proposed order resetting hearing. Parties should not assume that the relief requested will be granted even if it is agreed to or unopposed.

Counsel are also hereby advised that the Court expects all filings will be drafted by counsel and not generated or drafted by generative artificial intelligence. All fillings are subject to the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct, the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure and the Code of Criminal Procedure, and counsel will be held responsible for the contents of all their filings regardless of whether generative artificial intelligence drafted any portion of that filing.
