    Judge Mary Tom Cravens Curnutt

    Welcome to the website of your Precinct 2 Justice Court in the heart of historic Downtown Arlington!  As your Judge, I am honored to preside over one of the busiest and most productive courts in all of Texas.  Our Court handles over 15,000 filings annually in areas such as Evictions, Civil Small Claims, Debt Cases, and Class C offenses including Traffic and Failure to Attend School.

    In addition, our Court holds many Administrative Hearings including Towing, Property Seizures, Driver’s License Suspensions, Handgun License Revocations and Essential Needs Licenses.

    Our Court is also happy to perform Marriages.

    We are committed to serving the citizens of Tarrant County Precinct 2 by providing fair, efficient, effective and economical resolutions to all things handled by our Court.
