Hill v. Smith, MD (Tex.App.- Houston [14th Dist.] Feb. 19, 2009)(per curiam)
DISMISSED: Per Curiam
Before Justices Brock Yates, Guzman and Sullivan
14-08-01016-CV Kenneth Hill v. Bruce W. Smith, M.D., Michelle Lastrape, P.A., and Kathryn Bell
Appeal from 412th District Court of Brazoria County
Trial Court Judge: W. Edwin Denman
Section 51.014 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code provides for an appeal of
interlocutory orders in medical liability cases in two situations: (1) when the trial court denies relief
sought by a motion under section 74.351(b), and (2) when the trial court grants relief sought by a
motion under section 74.351(l). Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code Ann. § 51.014(a)(9)-(10) (Vernon
2008). Neither situation is present in this case. Appellant is not appealing the denial of a motion to
dismiss under section 74.351(b) nor the grant of a motion challenging the adequacy of an expert
report under section 74.351(l).
We find that the order signed October 27, 2008, is not a final, appealable order.
