The West Orange Municipal Court has jurisdiction over Class C misdemeanor cases and complaints occurring within the city limits of the City of West Orange.  The Judges hold court on Tuesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. and Thursday afternoons at 2:30 p.m.  Anyone receiving a citation (ticket) is required to either appear in court or pay the costs and fines at the court office within 14 days of the date of the citation.

Last session, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 1369, which mandates the reporting of appointments of and fees paid to attorneys ad litem, guardians, guardians ad litem, mediators and competency evaluators in any type of case (with some exclusions.)  Justice courts and municipal courts are most likely to need to report an appointment of a guardian ad litem or attorney in a truancy case.  Many courts will have no activity to report.  However, every court in the state must report each month, whether or not the court has any reportable activity.
