    • 091800043CV, 2018 WL 3384505
    • 1st District Court of Jasper
    • Justice Johnson, July 12, 2018
  • Parents of the children appeal from an order terminating parental rights. Appellants’ court-appointed counsel submitted a brief contending that there are no meritorious ground to be advanced on appeal and filed a motion to withdraw as counsel.
  • The Ninth Court agreed that any appeal would be frivolous but denied the motion to withdraw because an attorney’s duty extends through the exhaustion or waiver of all appeals, including an appeal to the Supreme Court of Texas.
