v.
Lawrence STURDEN, Appellee

          From the 49th Judicial District Court, Webb County, Texas Trial Court No. 2017CVA001873D1 Honorable Jose A. Lopez, Judge Presiding

          ORDER

          Sandee Bryan Marion, Chief Justice

         The reporter's records in these three appeals are late after this court granted the court reporter, Ms. Cynthia Lenz, multiple extensions of time.

         Appeal No. 04-19-00315-CV

         The reporter's record originally was due June 19, 2019. On June 24, 2019, Ms. Lenz filed a notification of late record requesting until August 3, 2019 to complete the reporter's record. On July 1, 2019, the court granted Ms. Lenz until August 5, 2019 to complete the record. On August 8, 2019, Ms. Lenz filed a second notice of late record requesting until September 5, 2019 to complete the record. On August 14, 2019, the court granted Ms. Lenz until September 5, 2019 to complete the record and advised Ms. Lenz: "No further extensions will be granted absent extenuating circumstances." On September 11, 2019, Ms. Lenz filed a third notice of late record stating she will "begin" working on the record in this appeal after completing a record in another case and requesting until October 5, 2019 to complete the record. On September 12, 2019, the court granted Ms. Lenz until October 7, 2019 to complete the record and advised Ms. Lenz: "NO EXTENSIONS WILL BE GRANTED. If Ms. Lenz fails to file the reporter's record . . . as ordered, Ms. Lenz may be ordered to appear and show cause why she should not be held in civil or criminal contempt or otherwise sanctioned." On October 8, 2019, Ms. Lenz filed a fourth notice of late record requesting until November 7, 2019, to complete the record.

         Appeal No. 04-19-00318-CV

         The reporter's record originally was due on June 13, 2019. On June 14, 2019, the court notified Ms. Lenz by letter that the reporter's record was late and must be filed by no later than July 15, 2019. On July 17, 2019, Ms. Lenz filed a notice of late record requesting an additional sixty (60) days to file the reporter's record. On July 29, 2019, the court granted the request, ordered that Ms. Lenz file the reporter's record by no later than September 15, 2019, and advised Ms. Lenz: ". . . no further requests for extension of time to file the reporter's record will be granted. If the reporter's record is not filed by September 15, 2019, the court reporter is further advised that an order may issue directing her to appear before this court in person and show cause why she should not be held in contempt for failing to file the record." On September 18, 2019, Ms. Lenz filed a second notice of late record requesting until October 16, 2019 to file the reporter's record. On October 7, 2019, this court ordered Ms. Lenz to appear in person on October 23, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. before a panel consisting of Chief Justice Marion, Justice Martinez, and Justice Alvarez to show cause why she should not be held in civil and criminal contempt and sanctioned for her failure to timely file the reporter's record in appeal number 04-19-00318-CV. The court advised Ms. Lenz that if she filed a complete copy of the reporter's record by no later than 5:00 p.m. on October 16, 2019, this court may elect to cancel the show cause hearing. On October 8, 2019, Ms. Lenz filed a letter expressing concern that she will not be able to file the record by October 16, 2019 due to having multiple reporter's records currently due in this court.

         Appeal No. 04-19-00485-CV

         The reporter's record originally was due on August 2, 2019. On August 6, 2019, the court notified Ms. Lenz by letter that the reporter's record was late and must be filed by no later than September 5, 2019. On September 11, 2019, Ms. Lenz filed a notification of late record requesting until October 5, 2019 to file the reporter's record. On September 13, 2019, the court granted the request, ordered that Ms. Lenz file the reporter's record by no later than October 7, 2019, and advised Ms. Lenz: "If the reporter's record is not filed with this court by October 7, 2019, any requests for additional time to file the record must be accompanied by a signed, written status report." On October 8, 2019, Ms. Lenz filed a second notice of late record, unaccompanied by a status report, requesting until November 7, 2019 to complete the record.

         It is therefore ORDERED that within five (5) days of the date of this order, Ms. Lenz must file in appeal number 04-19-00318-CV only a signed, written status report for each of the following appeals: appeal numbers 04-19-00315-CV, 04-19-00318-CV, and 04-19-00485-CV, as well as any other appeal(s) currently pending in this court for which Ms. Lenz is responsible for preparing all or a portion of the reporter's record.
