On Appeal from the 24th District Court of Goliad County, Texas.
ORDER OF ABATEMENT
Before Chief Justice Valdez and Justices Benavides and Perkes
Order Per Curiam
On July 22, 2015, appellant Milagro Exploration, LLC, filed a notice of bankruptcy in this appeal. According to the notice, appellant filed a bankruptcy petition on July 11, 2015 in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
Upon the filing of a bankruptcy petition, an automatic stay becomes effective which prohibits the commencement or continuation of any judicial action or proceeding against the debtor and any property within the debtor's bankruptcy estate. See 11 U.S.C.A. § 362(a). Pursuant to Rule 8.2 of the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure, the appeal is suspended. See TEX. R. APP. P. 8.2.
Accordingly, this appeal is ABATED until further order of this Court. Any documents filed subsequent to the bankruptcy petition will remain pending until the appeal is reinstated. The parties are directed to take such action as is appropriate to advise the Court of any change in the status of the bankruptcy proceeding which would affect the status of this appeal, including but not limited to, the filing of a motion to reinstate pursuant to Texas Rule of Appellate Procedure 8.3. See id. R. 8.3.
PER CURIAM Delivered and filed the 24th day of July, 2015.
