The Municipal Court is located at 302 W. Cotton street inside the Longview Police and Courts Building. The Municipal Court has jurisdiction over all Class C misdemeanors, such as traffic violations, some penal code violations and violations of the Code of Ordinances. The Court Administrator manages the court, with oversight from the Director of Administration.
The Longview Municipal Court is a Municipal Court of Record. The major differences between a Court of Record and a Non Court of Record are that the Judge is a licensed attorney, trials are either electronically recorded or a court reporter is provided to make an official record of the proceedings and the appeal of a judgment or conviction must be based on any errors made during the proceedings and not based on a request for new trial.
