NO. 12-17-00235-CV

Decided: September 29, 2017

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Alina Yancey filed an original mandamus proceeding complaining of the trial court's May 16, 2017 order denying the Texas Attorney General's motion to transfer venue. On September 13, 2017, this Court conditionally granted Yancey's petition and directed Respondent to vacate his May 16 order and issue an order severing and transferring the case as to H.P. and L.P. to Smith County. By an order signed on September 18, Respondent has complied with this Court's opinion and order, rendering this proceeding moot. Accordingly, we dismiss Yancey's petition for writ of mandamus as moot.
