17.01 Enforcement of Judgments
Back to Texas Rules of Disciplinary Procedure
The following judgments have the force of a final judgment of a district court: judgments entered by an Investigatory Panel, final judgments of an Evidentiary Panel and judgments entered by the Board of Disciplinary Appeals. To enforce a judgment, the Commission may apply to a district court in the county of the residence of the Respondent. In enforcing the judgment, the court has available to it all writs and processes, as well as the power of contempt, to enforce the judgment as if the judgment had been the court’s own.
