Supreme Court

Administrative Orders 

The Texas Supreme Court posts Administrative Orders to allow ready access by the public and lawyers across the state.

Administrative orders include orders for the publication and adoption of statewide rules; orders approving local rules; appointments to judicial boards, commissions, and task forces; attorney resignation orders; orders transferring appellate cases; judicial appointments to State Bar disciplinary actions; and other administrative orders.

The administrative orders from 1990-2001 were collected and posted to this website through a joint initiative of the Supreme Court of Texas and the Office of Court Administration, made possible through a grant from the Texas Bar Foundation.
