New Midland County Court to Become Reality

AUSTIN - A new court will be in session later this year in Midland.

Representative Tom Craddick says the 441st Judicial District will be established September 1st of this year.

The court was approved by the Texas House an hour before the Sunday deadline.

Craddick requested the new court be created to keep up with growth in Midland County and to help alleviate a backlog of cases.

Governor Rick Perry will make appointments to the court.
