Per the Chronicle’s Tropical Weather blog (a good source of information about Hurricane closings and openings, though I wish they would list ZIP codes when they publish a list of businesses that are open — since ZIP codes are generally geographically near their numerical neighbors, sorting by ZIP is a good way to provide such information in a way that our brains can easily use), the Harris County Criminal District (felony) courts will be open tomorrow, Wednesday, September 17, 2008, after a brief hiatus.
This agrees with the announcement on the Harris County District Courts’ webpage, but contrary to the announcement on the Harris County District Clerk’s web page that “The Criminal Justice Center at 1201 Franklin is closed until further notice.”
Also according to Tropical Weather, all bond cases scheduled to appear this week in the County Criminal (misdemeanor) Courts at Law are reset two weeks to the same day. But the Harris County Courts’ Office of Court Management webpage says that “The Harris County Criminal Courts at Law will reopen on Wednesday, September 17th and resume normal operations.”
I’ll be there bright and early tomorrow morning, but I thrive on chaos.
