IN RE: GARY DON JENNINGS, Relator

No. 05-17-00292-CV, No. 05-17-00293-CV

Decided: March 28, 2017

Before Justices Lang, Evans, and Stoddart

MEMORANDUM OPINION

In these original proceedings, relator complains that the Texas Department of Criminal Justice has improperly denied his request for release on mandatory supervision. This Court lacks jurisdiction to issue a writ against the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. See TEX. GOV'T CODE ANN. § 22.221; see also In re Daisy, No. 05-06-00717-CV, 2006 WL 1576389, at *1 (Tex. App.—Dallas June 9, 2006, orig. proceeding) (mem. op.). Accordingly, we dismiss these proceedings for want of jurisdiction.
