From the 25th Judicial District Court, Guadalupe County, Texas
Trial Court No. 14-2718-CV
Honorable William Old, Judge Presiding PER CURIAM Sitting: Sandee Bryan Marion, Chief Justice Karen Angelini, Justice Marialyn Barnard, Justice DISMISSED
A copy of appellant's notice of appeal was filed in this court on July 9, 2018. The clerk of the court notified the appellant in writing that our records did not reflect that the filing fee in the amount of $205 was paid. In addition, our record contains no evidence that appellant is excused by statute or rule from paying the filing fee. See TEX. R. APP. P. 5, 20.
On August 7, 2018, appellant was ordered to show cause in writing by August 22, 2018 that either: (1) the filing fee was paid; or (2) appellant is entitled to appeal without paying the filing fee. Our order stated that if appellant failed to respond within the time provided, this appeal would be dismissed for failure to pay the filing fee. See TEX. R. APP. P. 5, 42.3(c). Because appellant failed to respond to this court's order and has not paid the filing fee for this appeal, this appeal is dismissed. See id.
