IN RE: MOHAMED AHMED, Relator

No. 05-17-00702-CV

Decided: June 23, 2017

Before Justices Francis, Brown, and Whitehill

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Before the Court is relator's June 21, 2017 petition for writ of mandamus in which he complains that the trial court did not rule on his objections to the jury charge during a trial held in January 2017. The jury returned its verdict on January 30, 2017, final judgment was rendered on February 3, 2017, and relator has appealed the final judgment. See Cause Number 05-17-00457-CV.

To be entitled to mandamus relief, a relator must show both that the trial court has clearly abused its discretion and that relator has no adequate appellate remedy. In re Prudential Ins. Co., 148 S.W.3d 124, 135–36 (Tex. 2004) (orig. proceeding). Based on the record before us, we conclude relator has not shown he is entitled to the relief requested. Accordingly, we deny relator's petition for writ of mandamus. See TEX. R. APP. P. 52.8(a) (the court must deny the petition if the court determines relator is not entitled to the relief sought).
