Dismissed and Memorandum Opinion filed December 5, 2017. In The Fourteenth Court of Appeals NO. 14-17-00647-CV DH REDI-MIX, Appellant V. ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF GREATER HOUSTON, INC. AND THE NORTH AMERICAN ISLAMIC TRUST, INC., Appellees On Appeal from the 152nd District Court Harris County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 2014-37659 MEMORANDUM OPINION This appeal is from a judgment signed April 19, 2017. On September 19, 2017, appellant filed a motion to waive fees or, alternatively, to extend time to pay fees. On October 12, 2017, we ruled on the motion as follows: Appellant’s motion to waive fees is GRANTED IN PART. Appellant is deemed indigent for purposes of the appellate filing fee only. See Tex. R. App. P. 20.1. To obtain the clerk’s record and reporter’s record without payment of costs, a party must file a Statement of Inability to Afford Payment of Court Costs in the trial court. See Tex. R. Civ. P. 145. On October 25, 2017, the court notified the parties that we did not know if appellant filed the required statement of inability to afford payment of costs in the trial court or, if so, the outcome of its request for a free record. We stated that if appellant did not demonstrate, within 15 days, that it filed a statement of inability to afford payment of court costs or that it had made arrangements to pay for the record, we might dismiss the appeal. See Tex. R. App. P. 35.3(c); Tex. R. App. P. 37.3(b). The record has not been filed. We have not received proof that appellant either filed the required statement of inability to afford payment of court costs or has made arrangements to pay for the record. Accordingly, the appeal is DISMISSED. PER CURIAM Panel consists of Justices Christopher, Donovan, and Jewell. 2
