The single most important source of municipal court authority and jurisdiction is the Texas Constitution which gives the state legislature the power to establish courts and their jurisdiction when it sees fit. The legislature exercised this power and first created municipal courts in the Corporation Court Law of 1899. This law has been codified in the Texas Government Code. Municipal courts also look to various other statutes and codes for authority and jurisdiction.--Provided by the Texas Municipal Courts Education Center
The source of Court of Record Authority is the State of Texas Government Code, Chapter 30, Subchapter L.L.--Coppell. In addition, the following also authorize the Court: Coppell City Code, Chapter 5; 1996 Edition, and Art. 5 Sec. 31 Texas Constitution.
