State Bar says Britton's suspension didn't affect Brown County cases


BROWN COUNTY, Texas - The Brown County-Court-At-Law Judge says there will be no effect on the cases the county prosecutor tried with a suspended law license.

Judge Sam Moss told KTXS on Tuesday he spoke with the State Bar of Texas regarding news that embattled Brown County Attorney Shane Britton performed his legal duties with a suspended law license for more than two weeks.

Britton was administratively suspended on September 1 for unpaid dues, according to the State Bar. After KTXS alerted county commissioners Monday, Britton immediately took care of the issue.

Moss said he was advised that the reinstatement was retroactive back to the day of Britton's suspension, effectively saying the cases he prosecuted will not be adversely affected.

Britton could still face disciplinary violation for practicing law with a suspended license.
