Court of Appeals of Texas, Houston (1st Dist.).

Arnold Brown d/b/a Arnold Brown Construction Company, Appellant v. Monica Hankins, Appellee

NO. 01–15–00898–CV

Decided: January 21, 2016

Panel consists of Justices Higley, Huddle, and Lloyd.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Appellant, Arnold Brown d/b/a Arnold Brown Construction Company, is attempting to appeal from an interlocutory order, signed August 21, 2015, that denies appellant's motion to set aside an order dated September 27, 2013, striking appellant's pleadings and granting an interlocutory judgment for appellee, Hankins.

The order appellant is attempting to appeal is not a final judgment and does not purport to be.  See Lehmann v. Har–Con Corp., 39 S.W.3d 191, 200 (Tex.2001).  We have jurisdiction to hear an interlocutory appeal only if authorized by statute.  See Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem.Code Ann. § 51.014 (West 2008);  Stary v. DeBord, 967 S.W.2d 352, 352–53 (Tex.1998).  The August 21, 2015 order is not one for which an interlocutory appeal is statutorily authorized.

On December 15, 2015, this Court issued a notice to appellant that we would dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction unless appellant filed a response on or before December 28, 2015 establishing that this court had jurisdiction.  No response was received.

Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
