Dismissed and Memorandum Opinion filed November 28, 2017. In The Fourteenth Court of Appeals NO. 14-17-00677-CV ASHLEY CHANDLER, INDIVIDUALLY AND AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ESTATE OF KAREN WATSON, Appellant V. AL-T'S SEAFOOD & STEAKHOUSE, LTD., AL-T'S BAR, HAROLD THIBODEAUX, HERBERT THIBODEAUX, CARLA THIBODEAUX, ALT'S RESTAURANTS, INC. AND AL-T'S CAJUN PRODUCTS, INC., Appellees On Appeal from the 344th District Court Chambers County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. CV29489 MEMORANDUM OPINION This is an appeal from a judgment signed August 15, 2017. Appellant filed her notice of appeal on August 16, 2017. To date, our records show appellant has not paid the appellate filing fee. See Tex. R. App. P. 5 (requiring payment of fees in civil cases unless party is excused by statute or by appellate rules from paying costs); Tex. Gov’t Code Ann. § 51.207 (West 2013). On September 26, 2017, this court issued an order stating that if appellant did not pay the appellate filing fee by October 6, 2017, we would dismiss the appeal. Further, no clerk’s record has been filed. The clerk responsible for preparing the record in this appeal informed the court appellant did not make arrangements to pay for the record. On October 18, 2017, we notified appellant that if she did not provide this court, by November 2, 2017, with proof of payment or arrangements to pay for the clerk’s record, we would dismiss the appeal. As of this date, the filing fee has not been paid, and the required proof regarding the clerk’s record has not been filed. Accordingly, the appeal is DISMISSED. See Tex. R. App. P. 37.3(b) (allowing dismissal for want of prosecution because appellant failed to pay or make arrangements to pay for the clerk’s record); Tex. R. App. P. 42.3(c) (allowing involuntary dismissal of case because appellant failed to comply with court order or notice from clerk requiring response or other action within specified time). PER CURIAM Panel consists Chief Justice Frost and Justices Busby and Wise. 2
