Shelton Padgett, 1948-2004
by Michael Fox
Blogging was light last week as 2 speeches and a brief deadline preceded a quick week end trip to La Jolla. The weather was lovely and so was getting away. But sitting in a café yesterday morning just before heading to the airport I got an email from a San Antonio colleague that Shelton Padgett, a fellow management side labor lawyer, who I knew well from my 20 years of practice in San Antonio had died, way too soon, at the age of 56. Given the nature of our practice, management employment lawyers almost never have a case together and in fact are competitors. Still over the years, through the speaking circuit, various associations or whatever you end up becoming friends of many who do the same thing you do. Shelton was one of those, and he will be missed.
