PLACIDO GUERRA A/K/A CHITO GUERRA, APPELLANT,
THE STATE OF TEXAS, APPELLEE.
Memorandum Opinion Per Curiam
Appellant, Placido Guerra a/k/a Chito Guerra, attempted to perfect an appeal from an order entered by the 138th District Court of Cameron, County, Texas, in cause no. 2008-04-2100-B. Upon review of the documents before the Court, it appeared that the order from which this appeal was taken was not a final appealable order. The Clerk of this Court notified appellant of this defect so that steps could be taken to correct the defect, if it could be done. See Tex. R. App. P. 37.1, 42.3. Appellant was advised that, if the defect was not corrected within ten days from the date of receipt of this notice, the appeal would be dismissed for want of jurisdiction. Appellant failed to respond to the Court's notice.
The Court, having considered the documents on file and appellant's failure to correct the defect in this matter, is of the opinion that the appeal should be dismissed for want of jurisdiction. See id. Accordingly, the appeal is DISMISSED FOR WANT OF JURISDICTION. See id. 42.3(b),(c).
Memorandum Opinion delivered
and filed this the 22nd day of January, 2009.
