APPEAL FROM THE 241ST

APPELLANTS

 

V.

 
JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT OF

SMITH COUNTY, TEXAS, ET AL.,

APPELLEES

 
SMITH COUNTY, TEXAS
PER CURIAM

This appeal is being dismissed for want of jurisdiction because Appellants have failed, after notice, to provide this court with a final judgment or an appealable order. The notice of appeal in this case was filed on December 26, 2001. At the time of the filing of the notice of appeal, a final judgment or appealable order had not been signed. On January 30, 2002, this court notified Appellants that the appeal would be dismissed unless a final judgment or appealable order was provided on or before April 1, 2002. On February 18, 2002, Appellants informed this court that this appeal was stayed because of bankruptcy proceedings filed by the insurance carrier of one of the Appellees. On February 20, 2002, this court notified Appellants that the appeal would be dismissed unless either a final judgment or appealable order or a notice of bankruptcy pursuant to Tex. R. App. P. 8.1. was provided on or before March 4, 2002. As of March 7, 2002, Appellants have not responded to our February 20 notice. Accordingly, because an appeal may only be taken from a final judgment or an appealable order, City of Houston v. Kilburn, 849 S.W.2d 810, 811 (Tex. 1993), this appeal is dismissed for want of jurisdiction.

Opinion delivered March 11, 2002.

Panel consisted of Davis, C.J., Worthen, J., and Griffith, J.
