DENY; and Opinion Filed December 17, 2018. In The Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas No. 05-18-01315-CV IN RE THE UNKNOWN HEIRS, AND HEIRS WHOSE WHEREABOUTS IS UNKNOWN, OF THELMA FRANCIES SHAW BRADY, Relators Original Proceeding from the County Court at Law No. 2 Grayson County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 025128 MEMORANDUM OPINION Before Justices Lang-Miers, Fillmore, and Stoddart Opinion by Justice Lang-Miers Before the Court is relators’ petition for writ of mandamus in which they complain of the trial court’s denial of relators’ motion to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction. 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 relators have not shown they are entitled to the relief requested. Accordingly, we deny relators’ 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). 181315F.P05 /Elizabeth Lang-Miers/ ELIZABETH LANG-MIERS JUSTICE
