JIMMY SMITH APPELLANT
v.
RAY HOBBS, DIRECTOR, ARKANSAS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION APPELLEE

APPELLEE'S MOTION TO DISMISS APPEAL [LINCOLN COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT, NO. 40CV-13-109] HONORABLE JODI RAINES DENNIS, JUDGE

PER CURIAM

On February 7, 2014, appellant Jimmy Smith lodged an appeal in this court from a circuit court order that had dismissed his pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus. The appellee State now asks that the appeal be dismissed for appellant's failure to submit a brief.

Appellant was informed that his brief-in-chief was due here no later than March 19, 2014. As of the date of this opinion, he has not tendered a brief or filed a motion to file a belated brief. He has taken no action to pursue the appeal.

Failure of an appellant who is acting pro se to file a brief in an appeal is cause for dismissal of the appeal. Ball v. State, 2014 Ark. 152 (per curiam); Farnsworth v.
