Denied and Opinion Filed December 19, 2018 In The Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas No. 05-18-00812-CV IN RE MELISSA LARSEN, Relator Original Proceeding from the 101st Judicial District Court Dallas County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. DC-18-05693 MEMORANDUM OPINION Before Justices Lang-Miers, Fillmore, and Stoddart Opinion by Justice Stoddart Before the Court is relator’s petition for writ of mandamus in which relator complains of the trial court’s expedited discovery order and the trial court’s contempt order. 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 she 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). 180812F.P05 /Craig Stoddart/ CRAIG STODDART JUSTICE
