CATHERINE M. SHELTON v. Comm'n for Lawyer Discipline

On June 9, 2006, the Board of Disciplinary Appeals reversed and remanded the Default Judgment of Disbarment of Dallas attorney Catherine M. Shelton, 57, SBOT Card No. 13902800, issued by the Evidentiary Panel for the State Bar of Texas District 06A grievance committee in Case No. D0120322949. The Board found that because the affidavit attached to the motion for substituted service was defective, service of the evidentiary petition upon Shelton was insufficient to support a default judgment.
