IN RE: ANDREA VENIOR JOHNSON, Relator

No. 05-18-00568-CV

Decided: May 18, 2018

Before Justices Francis, Evans, and Schenck

MEMORANDUM OPINION

In this original proceeding, relator seeks a writ of mandamus directing the district court coordinator to send certain documents to the Court of Criminal Appeals. This Court does not have jurisdiction to issue a writ of mandamus against a district court coordinator unless it is necessary to enforce our own jurisdiction. TEX. GOV'T CODE ANN. § 22.221(a) (West Supp. 2017). Relator has no appeal pending in this Court and, therefore, our jurisdiction is not in jeopardy. Accordingly we dismiss relator's May 16, 2018 petition for writ of mandamus for want of jurisdiction.
