AXON RIG CONCEPT & DESIGN, INC., Appellee and AXON RIG CONCEPT & DESIGN, INC., Appellant V. GULF COPPER & MANUFACTURING CORPORATION, Appellee On Appeal from the 151st District Court Harris County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 2014-63456 MEMORANDUM OPINION This is an interlocutory appeal by both parties from an order signed July 29, 2016. On April 27, 2017, this court abated the appeal because Axon Rig Concept & Design, LLC petitioned for voluntary bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, under cause number 1732332. See Tex. R. App. P. 8.2. Through the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) system, the court has learned that the bankruptcy case was closed on November 17, 2020. The parties failed to advise this court of the bankruptcy court action. On September 14, 2021, this court issued an order stating that unless any party to the appeal filed a motion demonstrating good cause to retain the appeal within twenty days of the date of the order, this appeal would be dismissed for want of prosecution. See Tex. R. App. P. 42.3(b). No response was filed. Accordingly, we reinstate the appeal and dismiss it. PER CURIAM Panel consists of Justices Jewell, Spain, and Wilson. 2
