BONNIE F. SIMS v. Comm'n for Lawyer Discipline

On August 18, 2006, the Board of Disciplinary Appeals signed an Opinion and Order in the appeal of Dallas attorney Bonnie F. Sims, 62, SBOT Card No. 18415700, of a Default Judgment of Disbarment issued by the Evidentiary Panel for the State Bar of Texas District 06A grievance committee in Case No. D0070321415 on October 6, 2004. The Board found that the return of service was insufficient to support a default judgment because the return receipt did not bear Ms. Sims’ signature. The disbarment is reversed and the matter is remanded for a new trial.
