Hello Ms North,
I am including the Clerk for Judge Beau Miller, who is the Administrative Judge for the Harris County District Courts’ Civil Trial Division, in this response.
Given the fact the sitting Judge Reeder is not available until Monday, and you disavow legal responsibility or authority to answer an Emergency question, and wish to have me attend a conference in person in violation of the 59th Emergency Order, it is my understanding reading the Harris County District Judges Rules of Administration that a Judge can be made available to address my concerns as discussed below.
I respectfully await a response from an active Judge in the court today as to whether my constitutional rights to a remote hearing is being denied and an Order confirming this fact.
Furthermore, I cannot comply with your email retraction request because I complied with all the rules and laws, including filing the substantive pleadings and notices well before the hearing.
Due to the emergency timeline now before the court and myself, today’s emails are necessary and just, per Rule 1 Time Standard.
Hello Mr. Burke
As the CLERK of the court I will make note of all correspondence emails to this office and will make available for Judge Reeder upon her return Monday January 9, 2023. At this time any and all settings for Monday will remain on the court’s docket since I am not authorize to pass anything per any rule that you are stating. Any further emails to the court need to be withdrawn and you are required to address any additional matter with the Judge on Monday at set hearing.
Thank you in advance
Lead Clerk for 234th District Court
MARILYN BURGESS, Harris County District Clerk
201 Caroline, Suite 1300 | Houston, TX 77002
Hello again, Ms North
2022-68307 Burke v HCA
I hereby include opposing counsel in this email thread as it appears, in my humble opinion, that my constitutional rights are being seriously violated.
As such, I respectfully put the court on formal notice that I shall not be appearing in person at a cancelled hearing (Monday, 9 Jan, 2023 at 1pm) which should terminate automatically in law when it is a Plea in Abatement and opposing counsel have failed to object in a timely and compliant manner, as is the case here. As previously highlighted in pleadings submitted to this court, it is clear and obvious the Plea in Abatement takes effect as an operation of law for 60 days, and that period is active right now. Alas, you refuse to cancel the setting of the hearing despite my notice and emails.
If for whatever reason the court takes the opinion that the hearing is not cancelled, then two items need to be addressed.
First, I request once more, any and all hearings be remote per the Supreme Court of Texas Emergency Order supplied previously.
Second, I respectfully request an Order from this court today if you are maintaining what I construe to be an ultra vires act, and still wish to hold an in person hearing on Monday so I may formally request an interlocutory appeal.
I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
Can you explain the 59th Order to Harris County District Court 234, Judge Lauren Reeder presiding which wishes to act ultra vires by defying the Order, and while you’re there, explain that a Plea in Abatement, untimely challenged, cancels the hearing in law without a Court Order. https://t.co/mF0KLtlSPx

Once again, I respectfully request you seek legal counsel. The Plea in Abatement has cancelled the hearing, in law and does not require a court order.
You can’t pass Defendant’s hearing, only that can.
Good morning Ms. North,
I note the cancellation has not been applied to the settings page on the docket (See Screenshot attached).
Please confirm the hearing for Monday, Jan 9, 2023 is officially cancelled.
