McKinney TX
Judge Charles “Chuck” Ruckel is the presiding Judge for Collin County Justice Court 3-1 located in Plano, Texas. His precinct population is approximately 350,000 and includes parts of the city of Dallas that are located in Collin County. In fiscal year 2019, he will see approximately 8000 new civil cases with controversy of $10,000 or less and approximately 9000 new, fine-only, criminal cases. Beginning September 1, 2020 the Justice Court civil case jurisdictional limit will increase to $20,000.
