TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN NO. 03-12-00577-CV Appellants, Lewis S. Christian, Jr.; Mark E. Morgan, Sr.; and South Texas Urgent Care Center Corp.// Cross-Appellant, Monroe Medical Management, Inc. v. Appellee, Monroe Medical Management, Inc.// Cross-Appellees, Lewis S. Christian, Jr.; Mark E. Morgan, Sr.; and South Texas Urgent Care Center Corp. FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF TRAVIS COUNTY, 353RD JUDICIAL DISTRICT NO. D-1-GN-11-003758, HONORABLE SUZANNE COVINGTON, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION Lewis S. Christian, Jr. and Monroe Medical Management, Inc. no longer wish to pursue this appeal and have filed a joint motion to dismiss it pursuant to their settlement agreement. However, Mark E. Morgan, Sr. and his solely-owned corporation, South Texas Urgent Care Center Corp., were not parties to the settlement agreement. Counsel for Morgan and South Texas Urgent Care Center previously withdrew with Morgan s consent. Neither Morgan nor South Texas Urgent Care Center obtained new counsel. On June 4, 2013, the clerk of this Court notified Morgan that his brief was overdue and that this appeal was subject to dismissal for want of prosecution unless he filed a brief or responded to this notice by June 14, 2013. To date, Morgan has not filed any brief and has not responded to this Court s notice. Similarly, South Texas Urgent Care Center has not filed a brief and the Texas Secretary of State s office confirmed that South Texas Urgent Care Center no longer maintains a registered agent for service. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal as to Morgan and South Texas Urgent Care Center for want of prosecution, see Tex. R. App. P. 42.3(b),(c), and we dismiss the appeal as to Christian and Monroe Medical Management by granting their joint motion. Tex. R. App. P. 42.1. __________________________________________ Jeff Rose, Justice Before Justices Puryear, Rose, and Goodwin Dismissed on Joint Motion in part; Dismissed for Want of Prosecution in part Filed: August 9, 2013 2
