IN RE: JOSEPH ANDRE DAVIS, Relator

NO. 01-16-00695-CV, NO. 01-16-00731-CV

Decided: October 27, 2016

Panel consists of Justices Bland, Massengale, and Lloyd.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Joseph Andre Davis, acting pro se, has filed two original proceedings arising from an underlying suit affecting the parent-child relationship.1

In the first proceeding, cause number 01-16-00695-CV, Davis filed an emergency motion requesting the stay of a hearing and all underlying proceedings pending our determination of his “soon-to-be-filed petition for writ of mandamus.” Our court denied the motion. Davis did not subsequently file a petition. Accordingly, we dismiss the first original proceeding for want of prosecution.

In a subsequent proceeding, cause number 01-16-00731-CV, Davis filed a second request for an emergency stay for another soon-to-be-filed petition. Our court denied the stay. Davis later filed his petition. Having reviewed the petition for a writ of mandamus, we deny mandamus relief.
