|Judge, 9th District Court|
The district courts are the trial courts of general jurisdiction of Texas. District courts have original jurisdiction in felony criminal cases, divorce cases, cases involving title to land, election contest cases, civil matters in which the amount of money or damages involved is $200 or more, and any matters in which jurisdiction is not placed in another trial court. While most district courts try both criminal and civil cases, in the more densely populated counties the courts may specialize in civil, criminal, juvenile, or family law matters.
Montgomery County has seven district courts. As of January 1, 2013, the 9th Judicial District Court hears criminal cases, exclusively.
The incumbent judge for the 9th District Court is Kelly Case, who was originally elected in 2012 and is not running for re-election.
