No. 01-17-00513-CV.

Patrick McShane, v. Claudia McShane, as next best friend of J. M.

Court of Appeals of Texas, First District, Houston.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Sara Hall , for Claudia McShane, as next best friend of J.M., Appellee.

Glen R. Peterson , Vikash Bhakta , for Patrick McShane, Appellant.



This appeal was transferred to this Court on July 12, 2017. The record has not yet been filed. Shortly before the case was transferred, Patrick McShane filed a brief. Within a few days after the transfer, McShane tendered an amended brief together with a motion to file the amended brief. Neither brief complies with the Rules.

An appellant's brief must contain a statement of facts that is supported by citations to the record. See TEX. R. APP. P. 38.1(g). While a brief may contain attachments and cite to the attachments, it must also contain citations to the record. Because the brief does not do so, it does not comply with Rule 38.1(g).

Accordingly, we deny McShane's motion to file the amended brief and we strike McShane's brief and amended brief for noncompliance with Rule 38.1. McShane's brief is not due until 30 days after the record is filed. See TEX. R. APP. P. 38.6(a).

It is so ORDERED.
