Court of Appeals of Texas, Austin.

E.T. and T. T., Appellants v. Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Appellee

NO. 03–15–00274–CV

Decided: June 29, 2015

Before Chief Justice Rose, Justices Goodwin and Field

ORDER

Appellants E.T. and T.T. filed their notice of appeal on May 4, 2015.   The appellate record was complete June 2, 2015, making appellants' brief due June 22, 2015.   To date, appellants' brief has not been filed.

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) (providing 180 days for court's final disposition).   The accelerated schedule requires greater compliance with briefing deadlines.   Therefore we order counsel to file appellants' brief no later than July 14, 2015.   If the brief is not filed by that date, counsel may be required to show cause why she should not be held in contempt of court.

It is ordered on June 29, 2015.
