Appellate case number: 01-18-01047-CV
ORDER ON MOTION Trial court case number: 2016-10304 Trial court: 295th District Court of Harris County
This Court's April 30, 2019 Memo Opinion and Judgment dismissed this appeal for want of prosecution because appellants had failed to timely pay for the filing and clerk's record fees. See TEX. R. APP. P. 5, 37.3(b), 42.3(b). On May 15, 2019, appellants timely filed a "Motion to Reconsider Dismissal" contending that they had paid for the filing fee that day and were making arrangements to pay for the clerk's record fee immediately. This Court's May 23, 2019 Order on Motion construed appellants' motion as one for rehearing, requested appellee's response, and requested appellants to file evidence of payment of the clerk's record fee, both within ten days of that Order. See TEX. R. APP. P. 49.2. On May 29, 2019, appellants filed proof of payment of the clerk's record fee. On May 30, 2019, the district clerk filed the clerk's record. On June 3, 2019, appellee timely filed a response.
Accordingly, because appellants have now paid for the filing and clerk's record fees, and the district clerk filed the clerk's record on May 30, 2019, the Court grants appellants' motion for rehearing, withdraws the April 30, 2019 Memo Opinion and Judgment, and reinstates this appeal on the active docket. Cf. TEX. R. APP. P. 5, 37.3(b). Because the reporter's record had been filed on March 30, 2019, the Court orders appellants' brief to be filed within 30 days of the date of this Order. See TEX. R. APP. P. 38.6(a)(1).
