Court of Appeals of Texas, Fifth District, Dallas
Original Proceeding from the Criminal District Court No. 5 Dallas County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. F-0175463-PL
Before Justices Bridges, Lang-Miers, and Myers Opinion by Justice Bridges
DAVID BRIDGES, JUSTICE
Before the Court is relator's petition for writ of mandamus in which relator complains that the convicting court has failed to rule on his motion for production of the medical report prepared in connection with the rape examination of the victim. The motion for production of the medical report was filed in conjunction with relator's post-conviction petition for habeas corpus. Relator's petition for writ of habeas corpus was filed in the convicting court on April 1, 2011. The motion for production of the medical report was filed in the convicting court on July 13, 2011. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals denied the petition for writ of habeas corpus on November 14, 2012.

App.—Houston [14th Dist.] Feb. 19, 2009, no pet.); In re Bailey, 14-06-00841-CV, 2006 WL 2827249, at *1 (Tex. App.— Houston [14th Dist.] 2006, orig. proceeding); In re McAfee, 53 S.W.3d at 717. Should an applicant find it necessary to complain about an action or inaction of the convicting court with regard to any matter related to the petition for writ of habeas corpus, the applicant may seek mandamus relief only from the Court of Criminal Appeals.
