Court of Appeals of Texas, Houston (1st Dist.).

DOUGLAS RAY MADISON, Appellant v. HARRIS COUNTY, Appellee

NO. 01-17-00675-CV

Decided: October 05, 2017

Panel consists of Justices Jennings, Bland, and Brown.

MEMORANDUM OPINION

This is an attempted appeal from the county court's ruling on an appeal of a justice court judgment seizing ten dogs and two cats. Appellee has filed a motion to dismiss claiming this Court has no jurisdiction over this appeal based on Section 821.025(e) of the Texas Health and Safety Code. See TEX. HEALTH & SAFETY CODE § 821.025(e).

Section 821.025(e) provides that the decision by the county court to divest an owner of ownership of an animal under Section 821.023 “is final and may not be further appealed.” Id. Thus, appellant may not appeal the county court's ruling to this Court.

We dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction.
