TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN NO. 03-13-00418-CV Brent Tanksley, Appellant v. The State of Texas, Appellee FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF WILLIAMSON COUNTY, 395TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT NO. 00-2044-F395, HONORABLE TAMARA ARRINGTON, JUDGE PRESIDING MEMORANDUM OPINION Appellant Brent Tanksley, an inmate, has filed a pro se notice of interlocutory appeal from the district court s denial of his motion for reconsideration of issuance of capias and motion for speedy trial. Based on our review of the limited record before us, the motions were filed in what appears to be a proceeding involving the State s enforcement of Tanksley s childsupport obligations. Appellate courts generally have jurisdiction over final judgments and interlocutory orders that the Texas Legislature has deemed appealable. See Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 51.012; Lehmann v. Har-Con Corp., 39 S.W.3d 191, 195 (Tex. 2001). The interlocutory orders that are at issue here are not among those that we are permitted to review. See Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 51.014. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction. See Tex. R. App. P. 42.3(a). __________________________________________ Bob Pemberton, Justice Before Chief Justice Jones, Justices Pemberton and Field Dismissed for Want of Jurisdiction Filed: July 19, 2013 2
