I previously posted on my blog that the Supreme Court of Texas issued an emergency order stopping all hearings or proceedings for eviction until April 19th. Now that April 19th has gone and past – can my landlord now file for eviction and take me to court?

The answer is no – the Supreme Court of Texas issued another emergency order extending the deadline to April 30, 2020.
