B.O. and T. S., Appellant v. Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Appellee

NO. 03–12–00676–CV

Decided: November 30, 2012

TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN

O R D E R

Appellant B.O. filed her notice of appeal on May 25, 2012.   The appellate record was complete November 5, 2012, making appellants brief due November 26, 2012.   To date, appellants brief has not been filed.

Recent amendments to the rules of judicial administration accelerate the final disposition of appeals from suits for termination of parental rights.   See Tex.R. Jud. Admin. 6.2(a), available at http:// www.supreme.courts.state.tx.us/MiscDocket/12/12903200.pdf (providing 180 days for court's final disposition).   The accelerated schedule requires greater compliance with briefing deadlines.   Therefore we order Mr. Chris McHam to file appellants brief no later than December 13, 2012.   If the brief is not filed by that date, counsel may be required to show cause why he should not be held in contempt of court.

It is ordered on November 28, 2012.

Before Chief Justice Jones, Justices Rose and Goodwin
