A Whiff of Home Cookin’: Judge Eskridge Remands Shackelford’s Case Back to Texas State Court

Judge Eskridge previously dismissed Shackelford’s claims with prejudice. But in his admitted haste he missed Ocwen’s counterclaim. He Remands.

Shackelford v. Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC  (4:19-cv-01540)

We don’t know why this case would be remanded based on the history of S.D. Tex. So we pulled the docket to find out the name of the parties and their attorneys. Well, it opened up Pandora’s Box. Ray SHACKELFORD, a Texas attorney with quite a bit of sanctionable conduct in his earlier years, is representing Althea SHACKELFORD (89 yrs young). Her husband passed in 2017. It would appear Ray “Senior” is a family lawyer.

Case remanded to the 127th District Court of Harris County, Texas.

APR 26, 2019 | REPUBLISHED BY LIT: AUG 15, 2021

Ocwen moved for judgment on the pleadings in September 2019. Shackelford never responded.  The order granting that motion stated, “This action is dismissed with prejudice.” That was a bit hasty and overlooked Ocwen’s counterclaim. Ocwen sought no clarification, but then moved for summary judgment on its counterclaim six months later.

Conclusion

This case is REMANDED to the 127th Judicial District Court of Harris County, Texas for further proceedings. The Clerk is ORDERED to provide a copy of this Order to the District Clerk of Harris County, Texas. NO ACTION is taken on the pending motion for summary judgment by Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC.  It remains pending for consideration in the discretion of the state court on remand.

Ray L. Shackelford’s office and residence shown below. It appears they are a family of ‘connected’ lawyers in Houston, Texas. Why else would you be on the docket in Judge Eskridge’s court and not be brought before him in a “show cause” order for not performing your job as an attorney by not responding to any filings?

RAY L. SHACKELFORD OFFICE ADDRESS

RAY L. SHACKELFORD RESIDENCE

It would appear Ray “Junior” Shackelford is related as his residency history includes the Ozarks address listed in this foreclosure case. Ray “Junior” ran for JP in 2018, but he was unsuccessful.

The only remaining claim in this matter is Ocwen’s counterclaim for judicial foreclosure. For the reasons set forth below, Ocwen is entitled to summary judgment on its claim because it is the mortgagee of record, Borrowers have defaulted on the loan, have received notice of their default, and have not cured their default.

Burney on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, in the Democratic Party Primary in Harris County, Texas.”
