Austin Police Department and Southside Wrecker, Inc., Appellees FROM THE JUSTICE COURT PRECINCT 4 OF TRAVIS COUNTY NO. J-4-JC-12-002182, HONORABLE RAÃ L ARTURO GONZÃ LEZ, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION Appellant filed a notice of appeal in this Court, complaining of a judgment signed by the justice court. However, this Court lacks jurisdiction over justice-court judgments. That jurisdiction lies in the county or district court. See Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 51.001; see also id. § 51.012 (person may appeal from district or county court to court of appeals). We therefore dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction.1 Tex. R.
