M E M O R A N D U M O P I N I O N
Both parties have appealed from a judgment signed January 10, 2005. Enron Equipment Procurement Corporation has filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. The parties filed an agreed motion to abate this appeal pending the bankruptcy court=s review of a settlement agreement between them. Because a stay is automatically effected by Section 362(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, we stayed all proceedings in the appeal. See Tex. R. App. P. 8.2.
On September 15, 2005, the parties filed an agreed motion to dismiss their respective appeals because the case has settled. See Tex. R. App. P. 42.1. Attached to the motion is a sworn copy of the bankruptcy court=s order approving the parties= settlement agreement. Therefore, the bankruptcy stay is lifted and the parties= agreed motion to dismiss is granted. See Tex. R. App. P. 8.3.
Accordingly, the appeals are ordered dismissed.
Judgment rendered and Memorandum Opinion filed September 29, 2005.
Panel consists of Chief Justice Hedges and Justices Yates and Anderson.
