APPEAL FROM THE THIRD

APPELLANTS

 

V.

 
JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT OF

DON TOLNER AND LAURA TOLNER,

APPELLEES

 
HENDERSON COUNTY, TEXASPER CURIAM

Appellants filed a notice of appeal on June 10, 2002. On June 18, 2002, this court notified Appellants that a docketing statement must be filed upon perfecting an appeal. Tex. R. App. P. 32.1. However, Appellants neither responded to the notice nor filed a docketing statement. On July 3, 2002, this court notified Appellants that the filing fee for this appeal was due to have been paid on or before June 28, 2002 and that no docketing statement had been filed. Further, Appellants were informed that this appeal would be presented for dismissal if the filing fee and complete docketing statement along with file-marked copies of the judgment, motion for new trial, if any, and notice of appeal were not filed on or before July 15, 2002. Tex. R. App. 42.3(c). On July 16, 2002, Appellants filed a motion to extend the time for payment of filing fees and for filing the docketing statement and the other requested documents.

On the same date, July 16, this court notified both the District Clerk of Henderson County, Texas, and the reporter in the trial court that the clerk's and reporter's records had not been received, although both were due to have been filed by July 11, 2002. Tex. R. App. 35.1. On the court's own motion and in accordance with Tex. R. App. P. 37.3(a)(1), the time for filing the respective records or an extension request was extended until August 12, 2002. Copies of this notice were also sent to counsel of record for all parties.

On August 8, 2002, Appellants' motion for extension of time to pay filing fees and file documents was overruled. In addition, Appellants were notified that this appeal would be presented for dismissal if Appellants failed to pay the filing fee and file the requested documents on or before August 19, 2002.

As of August 21, 2002, Appellants have not paid the filing fee and filed the requested documents or otherwise responded to this court's notice. Moreover, we have not received the clerk's record or the reporter's record and have not received a motion to extend the time for filing either record. Accordingly, Appellant's appeal is dismissed pursuant to Tex. R. App. P. 42.3(c).

 

Opinion delivered August 30, 2002.

Panel consisted of Gohmert, Jr., C.J., Worthen, J., and Griffith, J.
