INTERVIEW: Hays for 99th District Court

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Early voting for the March Primaries begins next Tuesday. This week, we're focusing on the 99th District Court. 

Presiding Judge Bill Sowder is retiring. Four Republicans are running for that bench.

Phillip Hays is an attorney with almost three decades of civil trial experience -- which the 99th Court mostly hears -- and has served in Lubbock County Court-at-Law No. 3.

A guest on the News@Nine Tuesday, Hays said the 99th District Court has a streamlined caseload, but said it's up to the presiding judge to see it through, holding attorneys accountable for nay delays they push for

He said the general jurisdiction for the court opens it up to hearing felony criminal cases, and said he would be happy to take caseload off of other packed dockets.

Hays said his knowledge and experience set him apart from the other candidates.

Since there are no democrats running for this seat, whoever wins the primaries will take the seat. 

Early voting starts Feb. 18. and the primaries are on Super Tuesday, March 3.
