I'm glad I wasn't alone in my disbelief at Elizabeth Shelton et. al.'s gall in filing her should-be frivolous lawsuit. Defense attorney Mark Bennett has an excellent post in his blog. He also has additional information that is very interesting about the attorney representing Shelton who is Mark Sandoval. According to the post, Sandoval;
"First, he spent the three years from September 26, 1997 to September 26, 2000 suspended from the practice of law for conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation, and the period from March 27, 1998 to March 26, 1999 doubly suspended from the practice of law (I couldn’t find an announcement in the Texas Bar Journal explaining why, possibly because he was already suspended at the time)."
"Third — and I think this ties all the threads together neatly — Sandoval is appointed to juvenile cases almost exclusively by Harris County Juvenile Court Judge Pat Shelton — the father of Elizabeth Shelton."
Anyone else smell an odor here? Not the first time Harris County has allowed odd ball associations in its court. Not often I praise defense attorneys, but excellent post Mr. Bennett!
