TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN NO. 03-06-00427-CV Amaro Tijerina, Appellant v. Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, Appellee FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF TRAVIS COUNTY, 53RD JUDICIAL DISTRICT NO. GN301996, HONORABLE WILLIAM E. BENDER, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION Appellant Amaro Tijerina has filed a motion for temporary stay and extension of time to file the record. A letter from counsel’s doctor verifying counsel’s cardiac problems is attached to the motion. We grant appellant’s motion and abate this appeal until November 1, 2006. We note that a reporter’s record from the hearing on the motion for new trial was filed September 6, 2006 and counsel has filed a letter stating that he has requested the clerk’s record. We hope that this abatement will give counsel enough time to secure the record and possibly begin briefing the case, or, if necessary, make arrangements to secure additional assistance in lieu of his former associate. The appeal will be automatically reinstated November 1, 2006; earlier if counsel is ready. W. Kenneth Law, Chief Justice Before Chief Justice Law, Justices Puryear and Pemberton Abated Filed: September 14, 2006 2
