IN THE COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE
FOURTH COURT OF APPEALS DISTRICT
RONALD F AVERY
GUADALUPE-BLANCO RIVER AUTHORITY
MR. WILLIAM E. WEST JR.; MR. DAVID WELSCH
ON APPEAL FROM THE 25TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT
THE HONORABLE B. B. SCHRAUB, JUDGE PRESIDING
APPELLANT’S MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE
APPELLANT’S SECOND AMENDED BRIEF AND APPENDIX
TO THE HONORABLE FOURTH COURT OF APPEALS:
Now comes Ronald F. Avery, Appellant, with his motion to Leave and File his Second Amended Brief and Appendix and would show the Court the following:
1. Time is of the Essence:
The Appellant has made “time is of the essence” a priority over other matters of form. As a result typographic errors have been missed in his First Amended Brief and Appendix. On Tuesday December 7, 2004 he faxed his “errata sheets” containing 26 items to the Fourth Court of Civil Appeals.
2. No Substantive Changes:
The corrections do not contain any new material or substantive changes. All corrections are for convenience of all parties only.
3. Invitation to Submit Second Amended Brief and Appendix:
The Appellant was phoned on December 7, 2004 by Elisa Dixon after she received Appellant’s fax containing errata sheets. Ms. Dixon invited Appellant to file a Second Amended Brief and Appendix with all the corrections in the errata sheets no later than Monday December 13, 2004. She informed the Appellant that she had consulted with the “attorneys” and the “Judges” and was instructed to advise Appellant to file an amended Brief and Appendix instead of a lengthy errata sheet. Ms. Dixon instructed Appellant to bring with him on Monday a motion to leave and file his Second Amended Brief and Appendix.
4. Additional Time for Appellees to file their Brief:
It is presumed by the Appellant that the Appellees are due an additional amount of time to review the Appellant’s Second Amended Brief and Appendix. This issue was discussed by Appellant and Ms. Dixon.
5. Additional Time is not required for Appellant:
Additional time is not required beyond the file date of this motion as this motion is submitted with Appellant’s Second Amended Brief and Appendix.
Appellant phoned Mr. Kevin Jewell on Wednesday December 8, 2004, and left a message concerning this motion and Appellant’s phone number. Mr. Jewell returned his call the following day and left message that Appellees are unopposed to this motion.
THEREFORE, The Appellant prays that the Fourth Court of Appeals grant Appellant’s Motion to Leave to file his Second Amended Brief and Second Amended Appendix and further grant Appellees an additional amount of time to file their Brief.
Further, the Appellant prays for any other relief that he may be entitled to.
