Court of Appeals of Texas, Houston (14th Dist.).

IN RE: R.G AND M.G, Relators

NO. 14-17-00070-CV

Decided: January 26, 2017

Panel consists of Chief Justice Frost and Justices Brown and Jewell.


On January 23, 2017, relators R.G. and M.G. filed a petition for writ of mandamus in this court. See Tex. Gov't Code Ann. § 22.221 (West 2004); see also Tex. R. App. P. 52. In the petition, relators ask this court to compel the Honorable Roy Quintanilla, presiding judge of the 306th District Court of Galveston County, to vacate his order, signed on January 19, 2017, in which the court denies relators' request for leave to intervene and strikes relators' petition in intervention.

Relators also filed an emergency motion asking this court to stay all further proceedings in the trial court until a final decision by this court on relators' petition for writ of mandamus.

Generally, to obtain mandamus relief, a relator must show both that the trial court clearly abused its discretion and that the relator has no adequate remedy by appeal. In re Prudential Ins. Co., 148 S.W.3d 124, 135–36 (Tex. 2004) (orig. proceeding).

Relators have not established that they are entitled to mandamus relief. We therefore deny relators' petition for writ of mandamus and motion for stay.
