Eminent Domain Cases

 In Johnson County all ‘Eminent Domain' cases are filed with the County Clerk and are heard by a board of special commissioners appointed by the presiding judge of the court in which the case is filed.  Once the application is filed and the fees paid, the condemning party must contact the appropriate Civil Court Coordinator to get the board appointed and set a hearing date.  Cases are assigned to a specific court on a rotating basis.  New Office of Court Administration reporting requirements necessitate that prescribed case cover sheets be submitted with each new application or petition.   Forms available for downloading at the bottom of this page.

After the special commission rules any party not satisfied with the award may file an ‘Objection' to the award.  Upon filing of the ‘Objection' the case will then be heard by the presiding judge for that court.

Effective January 1, 2014, by order of the Texas Supreme Court, all civil case documents must be filed ectronically and no documents will be accepted over the counter or through the mail except those filed by ProSe litigants.
