TIMOTHY RAY COVIL, APPELLANT v. PAMELA L. COVIL, APPELLEE
Proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, Appellant, Timothy Ray Covil, filed a notice of appeal from the trial court's final judgment awarding Appellee, Pamela L. Covil, contractual alimony pursuant to a separation and property settlement agreement. After perfecting this appeal but before the appellate record is due to be filed, Mr. Covil filed in the trial court his request to “drop the pending appeal.” The request, which is signed by Mr. Covil, was forwarded to this court by the Gray County District Clerk. We deem the document as being filed in this court and grant Mr. Covil the requested relief. Without passing on the merits of the case, this appeal is dismissed. TEX. R. APP. P. 42.1(a)(1). Having dismissed the appeal at Mr. Covil's request, no motion for rehearing will be entertained and our mandate will issue forthwith.
