Bexar County JP Courts Disobey State Law

I was told today by a vehicle owner, who attempted to file a request for a probable cause tow hearing in Justice of the Peace Precinct 2. The Court clerk refused to accept the filing based on the Court's lack of knowledge, that as of this past September 1, 2009, the jurisdiction to where the hearing is held in the precinct to where the vehicle was towed from. (HB2571)

It's shame that Bexar County JPs think they are above the law, especially laws aimed to protect consumers.
