GEARL T. FLOWERS, Defendant Below, Appellant,
STATE OF DELAWARE, Plaintiff Below, Appellee.
Submitted: September 23, 2014
Superior Court of the State of Delaware, in and for New Castle County, Cr. ID No. 1008025982
Henry duPont Ridgely, Justice
This 24th day of September 2014, it appears to the Court that:
(1) On May 15, 2014, the appellant filed a notice of appeal from an April 29, 2014 Superior Court order sentencing him for a violation of probation. The appellant's opening brief and appendix were due on or before August 14, 2014.
(2) On August 18, 2014, the Clerk sent a notice of brief delinquency to the appellant. On August 26, 2014, the Chief Deputy Clerk issued a Supreme Court Rule 29(b) notice, by certified mail, directing the appellant to show cause why this appeal should not be dismissed for his failure to file an opening brief and appendix. The notice to show cause was sent again, by first class mail, on September 11, 2014.
(3) On September 23, 2014, the certified notice to show cause was returned in an envelope marked "Return to Sender, Unclaimed, Unable to Forward." The appellant also failed to respond to the notice show cause sent by first class mail and still has not filed an opening brief. Under these circumstances, dismissal of this appeal is deemed to be unopposed.
NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, under Supreme Court Rules 3(b)(2) and 29(b), that the within appeal is DISMISSED.
