Court of Appeals of Texas, Fifth District, Dallas
On Appeal from the 265th Judicial District Court Dallas County, Texas Trial Court Cause Nos. F09-62407-R, F11-61298-R
DAVID EVANS, JUSTICE
The Court REINSTATES the appeals.
On January 7, 2014, the Court ordered J. Daniel Oliphant removed as counsel and ordered the trial court to appoint new counsel to represent appellant. The Court now has before it the January 9, 2014 motions of Niles Illich stating that he has been appointed to represent appellant in the appeals. Counsel states he was appointed to represent appellant on January 9, 2014 and he seeks a sixty day extension of time to contact appellant and prepare the brief.
We DIRECT the Clerk to list Niles Illich as appellant's appointed attorney of record.
We ORDER the trial court to transmit its order appointing Mr. Illich to this Court within FIFTEEN DAYS of the date of this order.
We GRANT the motions to extend time to file appellant's brief to the extent that we ORDER appellant's brief filed in these appeals by MARCH 10, 2014. Because appellant's brief in the appeals is already almost one year overdue from its original due date, no further extensions will be granted absent a showing of extraordinary circumstances.
We DIRECT the Clerk to send copies of this order, by electronic transmission, to the Honorable Mark Stoltz, Presiding Judge, 265th Judicial District Court; Niles Illich; ...
