DENY; and Opinion Filed December 19, 2018. In The Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas No. 05-18-01158-CV IN RE JAMES DONDERO, Relator Original Proceeding from the 256th Judicial District Court Dallas County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. DF-11-16417 MEMORANDUM OPINION Before Justices Lang-Miers, Fillmore, and Stoddart Opinion by Justice Lang-Miers In this original proceeding, relator complains of the trial court’s September 27, 2018 enforcement 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 he is entitled to the relief requested because he has an adequate remedy on appeal. 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). 181158F.P05 /Elizabeth Lang-Miers/ ELIZABETH LANG-MIERS JUSTICE
