This case involves the propriety of the trial courts order dismissing appellants Gary and Blinda Fords negligence, failure to warn, and strict liability claims against appellees Performance Aircraft Services, Inc. and Robert Jones for the Fords failure to amend their pleadings within the time specified by the trial court. In four issues, the Fords contend that the trial court abused its discretion by sustaining appellees special exceptions to the Fords petition, dismissing the Fords case without trying lesser sanctions first, and dismissing the Fords case in light of their untimely first amended petition, which was filed before the trial court entered its dismissal order, and that it denied them due process. We affirm.
