Some judicial relief could be in store for Grimes County. The Texas legislature has approved a bill that will create a new District Court to serve Grimes and Waller Counties.

Currently Grimes shares two district courts, the 12th and 278th, with four other counties. But on September 1, a new, 506th District Court will be added to serve Grimes County. In 2008, Grimes will drop back to two courts when it is removed from the 278th District's jurisdiction. However, the arrangement will give Grimes County cases higher priority and quicker adjudication.

The bill is currently awaiting Governor Perry's signature.
