DISMISS; and Opinion Filed December 4, 2018. In The Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas No. 05-18-01054-CV ADRIAN BOOKER AND NICOLE SMITH, Appellants V. ANISSA MAHMOUDI, Appellee On Appeal from the County Court at Law No. 3 Collin County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 003-01795-2018 MEMORANDUM OPINION Before Justices Bridges, Francis, and Lang-Miers Opinion by Justice Lang-Miers By letter dated November 13, 2018, the Court questioned its jurisdiction over this appeal because there did not appear to be a final judgment or other appealable order. We instructed appellants to file, by November 26, 2018, a letter brief addressing this Court’s jurisdiction and cautioned them that failure to comply may result in dismissal of the appeal without further notice. As of today’s date, appellants have not complied. This Court has jurisdiction over final judgments and certain interlocutory orders as permitted by statute. See Lehmann v. Har–Con Corp., 39 S.W.3d 191, 195 (Tex. 2001); TEX. CIV. PRAC. & REM. CODE ANN. § 51.014(a) (listing appealable interlocutory orders). Appellants appeal from the trial court’s August 30, 2018 “Order Granting Collin County Clerk’s Office’s Motion to Quash Subpoena Application, Issuance of Protective Order, and Order for Reimbursement for Attorney’s Fees.” The challenged order is neither a final judgment disposing of all claims and parties nor an appealable interlocutory order. See id. For this reason, this Court lacks jurisdiction over this appeal. We dismiss the appeal. See TEX. R. APP. P. 42.3(a). /Elizabeth Lang-Miers/ ELIZABETH LANG-MIERS JUSTICE 181054F.P05 –2– Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas JUDGMENT ADRIAN BOOKER AND NICOLE SMITH, Appellants No. 05-18-01054-CV On Appeal from the County Court at Law No. 3, Collin County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 003-01795-2018.
