IN RE JULIA POFF, Relator


ORIGINAL PROCEEDING WRIT OF MANDAMUS
County Court Waller County
, Texas
Trial Court Cause No. C17-038

MEMORANDUM OPINION

On August 15, 2017, relator Julia Poff filed a petition for writ of mandamus in this court. See Tex. Gov't Code Ann. § 22.221 (West 2004); see also Tex. R. App. P. 52. In the petition, relator asks this court to compel the County Court at Law of Waller County, Texas to vacate certain orders of that court and of the Justice Court, Precinct No. 4 of Waller County, Texas.

To obtain mandamus relief, a relator generally must show both that the trial court clearly abused its discretion and that the relator has no adequate remedy by appeal. In re Prudential Ins. Co. of Am., 148 S.W.3d 124, 135-36 (Tex. 2004) (orig. proceeding). As the party seeking relief, relator has the burden of providing this court with a sufficient record to establish her right to mandamus relief. See Walker v. Packer, 827 S.W.2d 833, 837 (Tex. 1992) (orig. proceeding); Tex. R. App. P. 52.7(a)(1) (relator must file with petition "a certified or sworn copy of every document that is material to the relator's claim for relief and that was filed in any underlying proceeding.").

Relator has not established that she is entitled to mandamus relief. We therefore deny relator's petition for writ of mandamus.

PER CURIAM Panel consists of Justices Christopher, Brown, and Wise.
