Court of Appeals of Texas, Dallas.

IN THE INTEREST OF L.I.M., A CHILD

No. 05-16-00913-CV

Decided: October 28, 2016

Before Justices Bridges, Lang-Miers, and Whitehill

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Because temporary orders in family law cases are not subject to direct appeal, we instructed appellant to file a letter brief explaining how this Court has jurisdiction over this appeal from the trial court's temporary order directing appellant to submit to drug testing. See TEX. FAM. CODE ANN. § 105.001(e) (West 2014); Mason v. Mason, 256 S.W.3d 716, 718 (Tex. App.—Houston [14th Dist.] 2008, no pet.) Appellant complied, but his argument attacks the propriety of the order instead of the Court's jurisdiction.

As nothing in the record before us demonstrates we have jurisdiction, we dismiss the appeal. See TEX. R. APP. P. 42.3(a).

JUDGMENT

In accordance with this Court's opinion of this date, we DISMISS the appeal.

We ORDER appellee Melanie S. Lusk recover her costs, if any, of this appeal from appellant Robert James Moore.

ELIZABETH LANG-MIERS JUSTICE
