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

DAVID BAHR, Appellant v. KHALED ALATTAR, Appellee

NO. 14-16-00938-CV

Decided: February 23, 2017

Panel consists of Justices Christopher, Busby, and Jewell.


This is an appeal from an order signed November 8, 2016. The notice of appeal was filed November 17, 2016.

To date, our records show that appellant has not paid the appellate filing fee. See Tex. R. App. P. 5 (requiring payment of fees in civil cases unless party is excused by statute or by appellate rules from paying costs); Tex. Gov't Code Ann. § 51.207 (West 2013). Further, the clerk responsible for preparing the record in this appeal informed the court appellant did not make arrangements to pay for the record. Tex. R. App. P. 35.3(a)(2) (requiring party responsible for filing clerk's record to pay the clerk's fee or make satisfactory arrangements with the clerk to pay the fee unless party is entitled to appeal without paying the fee).

On January 12, 2017, this court issued an order stating the appeal would be dismissed unless appellant paid the appellate filing fee and provided proof of payment for the clerk's record by January 27, 2017. See Tex. R. App. P. 42.3(b), (c) (allowing involuntary dismissal of case for want of prosecution or because appellant has failed to comply with notice from clerk requiring response or other action within specified time).

Appellant has not paid the appellate filing fee or provided proof of payment for the clerk's record. Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed.
