The El Paso Court of Appeals recently dismissed an appeal because the appellant failed to comply with a trial court’s post-judgment orders.  Here, a final judgment was entered against the appellant and the appellant did not pay the judgment or file a supersedeas bond.  The appellee sought post-judgment discovery.  The appellant failed to answer the discovery resulting in two successive trial court orders both compelling discovery and awarding sanctions against the appellant.  After the appellant failed to comply with the second order, the appellee filed a motion to dismiss the appeal.  The court of appeals granted the motion citing TRAP 42.3(b), which authorizes an appellate court to dismiss an appeal for failure to comply with a court order, and dismissed the appeal.  The court’s opinion in Byrnes v. Ketterman can be found at this link.
