TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN NO. 03-13-00849-CV In re Personal Care Products, Inc. ORIGINAL PROCEEDING FROM TRAVIS COUNTY MEMORANDUM OPINION Relator Personal Care Products, Inc., has filed a petition for writ of mandamus and a motion for emergency stay, asking this Court to temporarily stay and ultimately vacate decisions made by the Executive Commissioner of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). However, this Court lacks jurisdiction to issue mandamus directly against HHSC. See Tex. Const. art. V, § 6(a); Tex. Gov t Code § 22.221(a), (b). Accordingly, we deny the petition for writ of mandamus and the motion for emergency stay. __________________________________________ Bob Pemberton, Justice Before Chief Justice Jones, Justices Pemberton and Rose Filed: December 30, 2013
