Request for Legal Opinion on Justice of Peace Authority, Submitted to Hays County District Attorney

We have drafted a request for legal opinion to address the scope of Justice of the Peace magistrate matters.

We are unable to request an opinion of the Attorney General, directly; and must request an “authorized requester,” to consider submission.

The District Attorney of Hays County is classified as an “authorized requester,” and we await his decision on the matter.

We are confident this will become a legal argument, either way; as there has been much subjectivism within the scope and duties of Justices for an extensive amount of time.

This matter will also evolve into Constable duties; a story we are working on drafting.
