John Boyd, Appellant v. Steven C. Hickman, Appellee

No. 05–14–00474–CV

Decided: July 30, 2015

Before Chief Justice Wright, Justice Lang–Miers, and Justice Stoddart


Appellant's brief in this case is overdue.   By order dated January 30, 2015, we ordered this appeal submitted without a reporter's record and appellant's brief to be filed within thirty days because appellant failed to respond to our September 10, 2014 letter directing appellant to provide the Court with written verification he had requested the record and had paid for or made arrangements to pay for the record, or had been found entitled to proceed without payment of costs.   By postcard dated March 3, 2015, we notified appellant the time for filing his brief had expired.   We directed appellant to file his brief and an extension motion within ten days.   We cautioned appellant that failure to file a brief and an extension motion would result in the dismissal of this appeal without further notice.   To date, appellant has not filed a brief, filed an extension motion, or otherwise corresponded with the Court regarding the status of this appeal.

Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal.   See Tex.R.App. P. 38.8(a)(1);  42.3(b),(c).

Opinion by Chief Justice Wright
