MEMORANDUM OPINION

Before Chief Justice Contreras and Justices Longoria and Perkes
Memorandum Opinion by Justice Longoria

This matter is before the Court on a defective notice of appeal and appellant's failure to correct the defects. On April 3, 2019 and May 7, 2019, the Court advised appellant that the notice of appeal was not in compliance with Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure 25.1(d)(2) and 9.5(e) and requested correction of the defects within ten days. See TEX. R. APP. P. 25.1(d)(2), 9.5(e), 37.1, 42.3(b),(c). Appellant has failed to correct the defects or otherwise respond to the Court's notices.

On May 7, 2019, the Clerk of this Court notified appellant, in accordance with Texas Rule of Appellate Procedure 42.3(c), that we would dismiss this appeal unless the $205.00 filing fee was paid. See TEX. R. APP. P. 42.3(c). Appellant has not responded to the notice from the Clerk or paid the $205.00 filing fee. See TEX. R. APP. P. 5, 12.1(b).

On its own motion, with ten days notice to the parties, an appellate court may dismiss a civil appeal for want of prosecution or failure to comply with a notice from the clerk requiring a response or other action within a specified time. See TEX. R. APP. P. 42.3(b),(c). Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal for want of prosecution and failure to comply with a notice from the Court. See id.
