WESTWOOD SOUTH PATIO HOMES HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION, INC., Appellee On Appeal from the 151st District Court Harris County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 2016-88917 MEMORANDUM OPINION This is an attempted appeal from the denial of a default judgment. An appellate court does not have jurisdiction to hear appeals from the denial of a default judgment. Generally, appeals may be taken only from final judgments. Lehmann v. Har-Con Corp., 39 S.W.3d 191, 195 (Tex. 2001). When orders do not dispose of all pending parties and claims, the orders remain interlocutory and unappealable until final judgment is entered unless a statutory exception applies. Bally Total Fitness Corp. v. Jackson, 53 S.W.3d 352, 352 (Tex. 2001); Jack B. Anglin Co., Inc. v. Tipps, 842 S.W.2d 266, 272 (Tex. 1992) (orig. proceeding). On October 4, 2017, appellee filed a motion to dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction because the record does not contain an appealable order. The record supports appellee’s motion. Appellant filed no response. The appeal is ordered dismissed for want of jurisdiction. PER CURIAM Panel consists of Chief Justice Frost and Justices Boyce and Jewell. 2
