ORDER

Randy J. Holland, Justice.

This 23rd day of April 2015, it appears to the Court that:

(1) On March 24, 2015, the Court received the appellant's notice of appeal from an order dated February 24, 2015, which was entered by a Superior Court Commissioner. The Senior Court Clerk issued a notice directing the appellant to show cause why this appeal should not be dismissed for this Court's lack of jurisdiction to consider an appeal directly from a Superior Court Commissioner's order.

(2) In her response to the notice to show cause, the appellant does not address this Court's lack of jurisdiction. The right of review of a Commissioner's order is to a judge of the Superior Court.[1] In the absence of intermediate review by a Superior Court judge, this Court has no jurisdiction to hear an appeal directly from a Superior Court Commissioner's order.[2] Therefore, this appeal must be dismissed.

NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED, under Supreme Court Rule 29(b), that this appeal is DISMISSED.
