The Texas Municipal Courts Education Center sponsors a listserv for municipal prosecutors to share information on current laws and procedures effecting the operations of Texas municipal courts, and to facilitate networking and collaboration surrounding issues arising in municipal court.

Dozens of active members contribute to the listserv, and users must be careful to not send irrelevant messages, as they will be blocked from participation.  Prosecutors who participate must agree to the Terms of Use. There is no charge to subscribe, as the listserv is sponsored by Yahoo! and contains a small amount of commercial advertising.

Address for Texas Municipal Prosecutors:

To join the listserv, email your name, title, court name, telephone number, and email address to Hope Lochridge. To remove your name from the listserv, just send a message to unsubscribe.

What is a Listserv?

Listservs work like a mailing list of people who are interested in the same topic. One person can correspond with many people at once. Every message posted to the list is automatically emailed to all of the list subscribers.

Terms of Use

The following terms are acknowledged and binding upon all prosecutors using the TMCEC Listserv:

1. By participating, users claim that they are currently employed as a Texas municipal court prosecutor.

2. Users agree that the primary purpose of the listserv is to provide a collegial forum for municipal court prosecutors to share general legal information and thoughts pertaining to municipal court matters.

3. Users agree that they will not disclose specific information about pending cases, reveal confidential information, or make inappropriate comments in violation of the Texas Rules of Professional Responsibility. Specifically users agree to not post entries manifesting a bias or prejudice, including but not limited to a bias or prejudice based upon race, sex, religion, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.

4. Users acknowledge that all electronic transmissions are neither confidential nor protected from public disclosure.

5. Users assume individual responsibility for their comments and agree that violation of the stated terms of use can result in their removal from the listserv and potential disciplinary action by the State Bar of Texas.

6. While the listserv is sponsored by the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center, the comments expressed by users are solely those of the author and are not those of the Texas Municipal Courts Association Board of Directors or the staff of TMCEC.
