Evictions

The eviction moratorium issued by the Texas Supreme Court ended on May 18th. Evictions are being accepted effective June 1, 2020 via E-file, dropbox, or US mail.

In order to proceed with an eviction, the plaintiff must include in their petition a statement that the eviction case is not subject to the Federal CARES Act.

JP 1 court hearings will not commence in Williamson County until after June 15, unless the case is considered an "imminent threat". Jury trials will not commence until further guidance has been received by the Office of Court Administration.

Much thought has been given to the safety of those who will be required to attend court along with staff, therefore Judge Musselman will hold court remotely via Zoom and by appointment only until conditions improve and until further notice.

 
Justice of the Peace KT Musselman, Precinct One

KT MusselmanBorn in the Texas Hill Country, KT Musselman was raised with public service and concern for others as core values. A proud Longhorn, KT completed a degree in Government from the University of Texas at Austin in 2006.

Over the years, KT has worked on campaigns from the U.S. Senate to Constable, as well as passing local bonds to improve healthcare, transit, and education in Austin, Travis County, and other Central Texas jurisdictions. KT brings a mindset to his political work that by listening, organizing, and changing the nature of the electorate, we can elect public servants who will fight for all of their constituents, not just the privileged or vocal few. He has also worked for county elected officials and officeholders and knows that making our government more proactive and responsive to the needs of the community is paramount.

KT has served the community by sitting on the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan Task Force and the 2018 Austin Charter Review Commission. An Eagle Scout and Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow, KT lives in Northwest Austin with his cat Loki. In his downtime KT enjoys hiking, trains and transit systems.
