‘Vexatious litigant’ has appeal dismissed in suit against Texas AG

By David Yates | Oct 16, 2017

AUSTIN – The 3rd Court of Appeals has dismissed an appeal brought by an individual labeled as a “vexatious litigant” after filing suit against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

Justices dismissed Senrick Wilkerson’s appeal on Oct. 13. His brief was originally due May 17. The 3rd Court granted multiple motions requesting time extensions, with the latest giving him until Sept. 18, court records show.  

“In granting the most recent extension, this Court advised counsel that no further extensions would be granted,” the court’s opinion states. “To date, the brief has not been tendered for filing and is overdue. Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal for want of prosecution.”

Last November, Wilkerson, representing himself, filed a notice of appeal challenging a trial court’s order declaring him a vexatious litigant.
