IN RE COMMITMENT OF JAMES GRINSTEAD


On Appeal from the 435th District Court

Montgomery County, Texas

Trial Cause No. 07-02-02125-CV


MEMORANDUM OPINION

James Grinstead filed a notice of appeal from an interlocutory order modifying residency requirements of his civil commitment order. We conclude the interlocutory order is not appealable and that mandamus relief is not warranted.

This Court has no appellate jurisdiction over the interlocutory order. See In re Commitment of Cortez, No. 09-12-00385-CV, 2013 WL 3270613 (Tex. App.—Beaumont June 27, 2013, no pet. h.). We have reviewed the merits of the issues to determine whether mandamus relief is appropriate. We considered these same arguments and issues in Cortez and rejected them. See id. For the reasons explained in Cortez, we conclude mandamus relief is not appropriate. We dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.

APPEAL DISMISSED.
