• Court of Appeals of Texas, Sixth Appellate District
  • 06-17-00049-CV
  • JOSH R. MORRISS, III, CHIEF JUSTICE
Glenn Armstrong moved for the county court to end or reduce the child-support wage-withholding order entered in favor of his ex-wife. The trial court, after hearing from Armstrong, denied his request and continued the wage-withholding order. The trial court then denied Armstrong's motion for a new trial. Armstrong appealed, arguing that the trial court improperly denied his motion for a new trial because he had satisfied the requirements of Craddock v. Sunshine Bus Lines. The court denied his appeal. Craddock does not apply, the court held, when a case is tried on the merits. It held that, because Armstrong was present at, and engaged in, the hearing, the judgment entered by the trial court was not a default judgment. The court accordingly overruled Armstrong's point of error and affirmed the trial court's judgment. In the Interest of GBA, Court of Appeals, No. 06-17-00049-CV, 8/30/17
