Untimely notice of appeal requires dismissal of appeal

The rule that an untimely appeal must be dismissed required the dismissal of the appeal of a paternity action in J.B.C. v. P.H.R, [Ms. 2061131] (March 21, 2008).  In an action to determine paternity, an appeal mustbe filed within 14 days of the order in issue; however, in this case, the putative father filed his appeal 21 days after the order.  Thus, the Court of Civil Appeals dismissed the appeal as untimely.
