TEXAS RULES OF CIVIL PROCEDURE
PART VIII - CLOSING RULES
RULE 814. EFFECTIVE DATE
These rules shall take effect on September 1st, 1941. They shall govern all proceedings in actions
brought after they take effect, and also all further proceedings in actions then pending, except to the
extent that in the opinion of the court their application in a particular action pending when the rules
take effect would not be feasible or would work injustice, in which event the former procedure shall
apply. All things properly done under any previously existing rule or statutes prior to the taking
effect of these rules shall be treated as valid. Where citation or other process is issued and served in
compliance with existing rules or laws prior to the taking effect of these rules, the party upon whom
such citation or other process has been served shall have the time provided for under such previously
existing rules or laws in which to comply therewith.
RULE 815. SUBSTANTIVE RIGHTS UNAFFECTED
These rules shall not be construed to enlarge or diminish any substantive rights or obligations of any
parties to any civil action.
RULE 816. JURISDICTION AND VENUE UNAFFECTED
These rules shall not be construed to extend or limit the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of
Texas nor the venue of actions therein.
RULE 818. REFERENCE TO FORMER STATUTES
Wherever any statute or rule refers to any practice or procedure in any law, laws, statute or statutes,
or to a title, chapter, section, or article of the statutes, or contains any reference of any such nature,
and the matter referred to has been supplanted in whole or in part by these rules, every such reference
shall be deemed to be to the pertinent part or parts of these rules.
RULE 819. PROCEDURE CONTINUED
All procedure prescribed by statutes of the State of Texas not specifically listed in the accompanying
enumeration of repealed articles shall, insofar as the same is not inconsistent with the provisions of
these rules, continue in accordance with the provisions of such statutes as rules of court. In case of
inconsistency between the provisions of these rules and any statutory procedure not specifically listed
as repealed, these rules shall apply.
RULE 820. WORKERS' COMPENSATION LAW
All portions of the Workers' Compensation Law, Articles 8306--8309-1, Revised Civil Statutes, and
amendments thereto, which relate to matters of practice and procedure are hereby adopted and
retained in force and effect as rules of court.
RULE 821. PRIOR COURT RULES REPEALED
These rules shall supersede all Court Rules heretofore promulgated for any court; and all of said
prior Court Rules are hereby repealed; provided, however, any rules or procedure heretofore adopted
by a particular county or district court or by any Court of Appeals which were not of general
application but were solely to regulate procedure in the particular court promulgating such rules are
to remain in force and effect insofar as they are not inconsistent with these rules.
RULE 822. TITLE
These rules may be known and cited as the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure.
