THE STATE OF TEXAS, Appellee On Appeal from the 56th District Court Galveston County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 12-CR-2928 MEMORANDUM OPINION Appellant was adjudicated guilty of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance. See Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. § 481.112 (West 2017). On September 19, 2017, this court ordered a hearing to determine why appellant’s counsel had not filed a brief in this appeal. The trial court conducted the hearing on September 28, 2017. At the hearing, appellant stated she no longer wished to pursue her appeal. Appellant has not filed a written motion to dismiss the appeal. See Tex. R. App. P. 42.2(a). However, based upon the testimony at the hearing that appellant does not want to continue her appeal, we conclude good cause exists to suspend the operation of Rule 42.2(a) in this case. See Tex. R. App. P. 2. Accordingly, we reinstate and dismiss the appeal. PER CURIAM Panel consists of Justices Jamison, Busby, and Donovan. Do Not Publish — Tex. R. App. P. 47.2(b). 2
