DISMISSED; Opinion Filed December 21, 2018. In The Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas No. 05-18-01141-CV IN THE INTEREST OF L.M.M., L.R.M. AND A.A.M, CHILDREN On Appeal from the 304th Judicial District Court Dallas County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. JC-18-00113-W MEMORANDUM OPINION Before Justices Francis, Stoddart, and Schenck Opinion by Justice Stoddart This is an appeal in a parental termination case. In the notice of appeal, Father generally complains about the removal process and actions by certain individuals. No final judgment has been signed, nor has a final trial been held. Because appeals may generally be taken only from final judgments, we questioned our jurisdiction over the appeal and directed Father to file a letter brief addressing our concern. See Lehmann v. Har-Con Corp., 39 S.W.3d 191, 195 (Tex. 2001). More than ten days have passed and, although we cautioned Father that failure to file the requested letter brief could result in dismissal of the appeal, Father has not responded. See TEX. R. APP. P. 42.3(a), (c). Because no final judgment has been signed, we dismiss the appeal. Id. 42.3(a); Lehmann, 39 S.W.3d 195. 181141F.P05 /Craig Stoddart/ CRAIG STODDART JUSTICE Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas JUDGMENT IN THE INTEREST OF L.M.M., L.R.M.
