About General Hearings

General hearings, also called general docket or contested case hearings, include cases in which a State of Texas agency decides to take certain action against a person or business. The law often allows the person or business to request an administrative hearing to challenge the action. When a hearing is requested, the agency sends, or refers, the case to the State Office of Administrative Hearings for the hearing. General hearings cover a wide range of subjects including:

  • Professional licensing and regulation
