Conrad Day fo District Judge

CONRAD DAY - About The District Court

The 155th Judicial District Court serves Austin, Fayette, and Waller Counties. In Texas, the district courts are the trial courts of general jurisdiction. District courts have original jurisdiction in all felony criminal cases, divorce cases, cases involving title to land, civil matters in which the amount in controversy is over $200, and any matters in which jurisdiction is not placed in another court.

There is no maximum limit to the amount-in-controversy jurisdiction of a Texas District Court over a civil dispute. In other words, the District Court has jurisdiction over the most complex civil matters.

Additionally, the District Court in Texas exercises jurisdiction over the most serious criminal cases, and all felony criminal cases, including capital murder cases. A capital murder case is a case in which the defendant is accused of a crime punishable by the death penalty.

Currently, our district has nine (9) pending capital murder cases, with five in Austin County and four in Waller County.

The next judge of the 155th Judicial District will likely preside over these cases. For this reason, it is important that the voters of Austin, Fayette, and Waller Counties choose the candidate with the most experience. It is important that the next judge of our district be the candidate who will not require on-the-job training.

I am the most experienced candidate.

I have been practicing law for twenty-nine (29) years, ten years longer than the next-most experienced candidate. I have tried over 100 criminal and civil jury trials to verdict, including over 20 felony criminal cases, and I am Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for my expertise in Family Law.

I am the most qualified candidate to be the next judge of the 155th Judicial District, and I would appreciate your vote in the Republican Runoff on April 13, 2010.
