I received an eviction notice and the JP court ruled against me. Then I appealed and requested a jury hearing in the district court which is pending. The home was sold to another person and the new owner filed a motion to substitute plaintiff in the district court, but later filed a new eviction citation in the JP court while the jury hearing is pending in the district court.
No. File a motion to dismiss the new eviction in the JP court on the ground that the right to possession in on appeal and is presently under the jurisdiction of the district court. If that doesn't work, move for a writ of prohibition in the district court. As an appellate court, the district court can issue a writ to protect its jurisdiction from other, lower courts, as the justice court is in this case.
