ORDER OF ABATEMENT
LAURA CARTER HIGLEY, Judge.
On December 20, 2016, counsel for appellant, P.L.B., Frederick K. Wilson II, filed a notice of appeal from the December 7, 2016 final decree of termination. On February 7, 2017, this Court, among other things, ordered appellant's counsel to file appellant's brief by February 27, 2017, without a reporter's record. On March 1, 2017, the Clerk of this Court sent a late-brief notice to counsel notifying him that the brief was due within 10 days of that notice and that, because this was a termination appeal, this Court is required to dispose of this appeal within 180 days of the date the notice of appeal was filed, so far as reasonably possible. See TEX. ST. JUD. ADMIN. R. 6.2(a) (West Supp. 2016). Here, the 180-day compliance deadline is June 16, 2017. No brief has been filed.
Accordingly, the Court sua sponte
The appeal is abated, treated as a closed case, and removed from this Court's active docket. The appeal will be reinstated on this Court's active docket when the supplemental clerk's record complying with this Order is filed with this Court.
It is so ORDERED.
